    I'm looking to confirm the true colors of the T5 ncv in each of these 2 sets.

    Everyone always refers to them both as fuschia. However some photos I've seen they don't look the same. (Probably the fault of age/Katrina).

    1st pic is my Gulfport, and the 2nd pic is a another Gulfport from TheChipGuide.

    3rd pic is a Biloxi from TheChipGuide.
    4th pic @bentax1978 was nice enough to grab a nice pic of his Biloxi T5s with reference chips.
    (His Biloxis at 3h and 9h were oiled).

    The more I look at mine and Bentax1978's, they both look the same. Maybe hard times have made them darker when compared to a non played fuschia sample chip, and compared to the pics on the Chip Guide.

    What say the experts? Same color?
    (Basically I need 25 more Gulfport fuschia and wondering if the Biloxi is the same and can fill my need.)

    Thanks!

    Edit: Because not all cameras grab colors the same, I manipulated the color of my photo until it looked identical to the actual chip.

    I think there's only a couple of these sets in existence. @pokerplayingpisces is one of the lucky few.

    The T5s are the old version of Rose. I confirmed this with @toad94 a few years ago, as he has a very complete Paulson color set. I think he even posted a pic of it on the blue wall. If both of us go digging through our files, I'm sure we could find it for you.

    FYI- The above information is for the Grand Biloxi set, only. I'm not sure what color the Gulfport T5 is.

    Interesting. Even though I only have a new(er) Rose sample, it does look closer than Fuschia.

    FWIW, those used Biloxi T5 chips (now in Dan's possession) exactly match the colors of my used heavily-leaded Fuchsia chips from that same era. Dunno if I have any Rose chips from that period of time.
