Default Top Irons Paint

I'm replacing the top on my '31 Deluxe Roadster, and will repaint the top irons.
I have the "Paint and Finish Guide" (second edition, revised). It shows "Top Iron Gray (400A)".
I also have info. off the internet referencing Walter Kauffman (Model A News) that the Deluxe Roadster top irons are "Satin Golden Beryl".
The "Paint and Finish Guide"does show a "Satin Golden Beryl", but does not reference top irons.
So...My questions are:
1. Is "Satin Golden Beryl" the correct color for Deluxe Roadster top irons?
2. Is the finish actually satin or is it gloss as shown on the chip in the Guide?
3. Do any of the Vendors sell it in aerosol?
4. My info. shows the DuPont number, but I would prefer PPG. Does anyone
know the PPG number?

Page 6 of your Paint & Finish Guide does reference Dlx Roadster Top Irons as "Satin Golden Beryl".

Thanks. I should have read that. I notice that the paragraph used "satin" in lower case which indicates to me that it is not part of the color name, but rather a description of the amount of shine.
Thanks again,
Tom

It means it has a flattening agent in it
As does the 180A iron paint

I took my Paint and Finish Guide #3 in to my PPG paint guy. He used his scanner to read the Satin Golden Beryl chip and came up with "Atlas Yellow", code CAS7108. I haven't sprayed my top irons yet, but his Atlas Yellow paint chip was too close for me to tell any difference. He mixed up a couple cans for me.
