I think the new one definitely pops more. So, the colors don’t match, who really cares. If you had 100 people come look at it, they would say it looks beautiful. Plus, there are variations in color and print in many back glasses. Lots of originals differ from each other. It’s the nature of the beast. Enjoy your minty backglass!! Also, I know Steve travels all over the world, so communication can be tough at times. He always comes through though.
