Hi Folks,

Thanks to a suggestion by Bill Guyger - AD5OL I went to my local
Shewin-Williams store. 
They custom mixed, and got 100% color correct a gallon of paint for me.

The type is as follows:

S-W "All Surface Enamel", "Acrylic Latex Satin", "Low Sheen, Ultradeep Base"

I gave them a piece off of the BC-1H, they stuck it in their matching gizmo,
and bingo, got it on the 1st try!
The sheen may be just a hair more glossy than the original, but then it's
hard to say after 40 years, what the original "sheen" was anyway!

Thanks Bill, and hope this helps someone else!
