Model 14 Micarta, black or brown?

I have a model 14 with a micarta handle (mid 1960’s, solid, no screws).

I cant tell if its black or brown. I took photos... on a white background it looks black and on a black background it looks brown.

Was there a color in between brown and black?

Thanks!

My guess is black Micarta.
I have a mid 60's Brown Micarta Astro, looks different in different light, but in sun, its brown. Take a shot of it in sunlight.

Thanks... that’s a great looking Astro!

I read that brown micarta (1964-65) was replaced by “veined green” which was actually black canvas micarta. This “veined green” black micarta looks and turns brown/yellow with age giving it a brownish hue.

I’ll take some pics in full sun and see what is looks like.
