    That's an excellent bust, and some great references shared here, too.

    The gray was a shade called "pike gray", "Hechtgrau", wasn't it?

    Prost!

    Yes, I recall a similar comment in some of my references, too. The color goes back at least to the army of Maria Theresa, and scholars and authors debate what the exact color was. I don't know if any paint manufacturer has ever produced it commercially.

    Prost!

    Looking forward to your progress Nap...….house moving is no picnic.....I think the hardest part is for the movers...Just think about it; they have to pick up the whole damn house and move it from one place to another. You think that's easy?.....I think not.
