Subject: [CR]Legnano-green: how to get the exact color?

I know some list members have been (or are currently) restoring Legnano frames in the classic 'chartreuse' green color. My question is: how do you get the color right? Is there a known Legnano-green color standard? Or is it a matter of craftmanship, mixing your own color until looks right? I am about to have my Legnano Roma Olimpiade repainted. I have a NOS Legnano-green Silca pump (always stored in paper bag) which I would use as a model for the frame color. Is this a good idea? Thanks for your input.
