Yea, that kinda sorta looked like a metallic.

I replied in your Samba thread, though I couldn t find the color identified specifically.

Looks like TheDDB is long gone, maybe not a bad thing, judging from the seller feedback.
Good that you are getting a sample, because the metallic variations will be huge and a color match isn t enough to truly match.  It also lets you see it in many types of lighting.
