Just hazarding a guess, but I bet the shade of CDL depends on whether it 
was French built or Macchi built. As to which shade goes with which, I 
have no idea. Baring someone more knowledgeable than I chiming in, you 
might look for photos of known French and Macchi built machines and see 
if there appears to be a noticeable difference of CDL shade. My 
references are packed away so I can't say for sure.
