Looking at my 1970 issued SSN card, it must be a misprint when it is written "For Social Security and Tax Purposes - Not For Identification". I understand the new cards no longer contain that "misprint".
My "Form OA-702 Revision 1-72 (January, 1972)" issued in 1974 SSN card does not contain that statement.
