Replacing Hall Light

I am replacing a hall light with a new light. House built around 1978. Supply wiring probably rated 60 degrees centigrade max. New light requires supply connection wire rated for at least 75 degrees centigrade. One of the previous posts in this section says use new nm-b 90 degree rated wire for the last foot before a new box. Question: How can I tell what the degree rating is on the replacement wire. Thanks.

It should be marked on the sheathing. If its not, you have to take it at 60.
