Interesting color. Not quite what I would have expected. I'm wondering if that there was some color shifting over the decades (I have a bottle of Quink Microfilm Black -- the stuff used for V-Mail -- and it's almost more of a blue-black color, or at least has blue undertones to it).

Thanks for the review.
