Truth hardware color matching

Could you please tell me which color ("bronze," "clay" or "dark bronze") of folding crank handle 39-205 matches the "bronze" color of 38-075 sash lock, and if it is a very close match? I don't wish to presume that "bronze" is the correct answer and buy wrong-colored crank handles, so if you could visually inspect colors and let me know, I'd be most appreciative. I am asking you to compare the handle with the sash lock, instead of with the operator, because I understand that Truth no longer makes the 40056 operator, and you don't stock or sell it, but Truth is the manufacturer of your 38-075. And my existing Truth 40056 operators match the existing Truth sash locks just fine. I realize, of course, slight color variations can happen over many years between manufacturing/painting two different pieces of hardware, even if manufactured by the same company out of the same facility.

Hello! The Bronze color option for both the 39-205 and 38-075 match quite well to my eye. It's wise of you to want to double check; I can think of a few instances where two manufacturers define the same color different ways. However, both of these parts are made by Truth so I think you should be okay.
