Default Does Optima battery charge different

I have a recently acquired 1930 A that has a 6 volt alternator and an Optima 6 volt battery. Battery always seems to be charged, but amp meter never shows much of charging indication. Lights and horn attached to alternator, but amp shows strong negative reading when either are on, even with considerable engine speed. Does the alternator (internal regulator) need to be matched with the Optima battery in some way, or what else is going on. Anyone else using an alternator along with an Optima battery? Thanks for the help.
