Paint color codes

So a few years ago we bought 10 gal ( 2- 5 gallons) of Glidden essentials with color added to BL, CL and RL of 96, 272 and 160 respectfully ( natural linen). Picked up 1 gallon today of the base and color but the tint codes do not match. For the 1 gal, they are 96, 208 and 32. It shows ad natural linen but I'm concerned the color will no off. Is this correct? Possibly due to the container since differences? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi ReAch,

After several years paint colors will change, even with the same code the tint based may have been reformulated to improve performance or meet environmental requirements. The only real way to match your original color, which now has faded, is to do a computer color match from a sample off your wall or trim.
