      Remember when there were names like Pond Pine, Verdigris, or Black Cherry? Did they become other names?

      For some reason, I wrote down that Verdigris became Marsh Grass 3349. Does this sound correct?

      Is there a chart of the old names to the names that correspond to a DMC color?

      Right? Before I moved everything into the DMC colors. Almost all of them were absorbed into color family names. I don’t think there is a list anywhere…
