Default 1 HP Mogul Color

I restored a 1 HP Mogul which I am very proud of, its my favorite engine. I painted it the color specified according to the paint number I found in Wendels little book. My concern is whether it is the right color. I don't doubt the paint number, but whether the paint was correctly mixed. I have seen several 1 HP Moguls and not one is the same shade of green as the last one. Mine is a lite yellowish green. Does anybody have one with some original paint left?
Thanks Greg

I have a 1 HP mogul 1918 that is all original and is painted light green on the skid,flywheels and gear guard only. all the rest of the engine is a dark olive drab like the M's have on them. I have seen two other 1 HP Moguls with original paint like this but I have never seen an original painted all light green.

This one is a lighter shade of green. Probably used Wendel's number too.
