thats awesome, actually feel a lot better about mine now, the grain and darkness does kinda match a couple of those examples.The original backs were medium-red in color. Of course many faded to orange or brown, but unless they were exposed to extreme levels of grime, nicotine, etc, they really did not darken. As they fade, they lighten in color. Here are 66 different examples of 1959 bursts for reference.
