    Biggest reason I don’t fret this is because I’m not a merchant.

    *** so my point, and I do have one, is alg, the comparison photo you took, might give the merchant an opportunity to match, or say Sorry, don’t have it, or I can get it. Might take a while, but save shipping back and forth.

    Ask for different lighting; low indirect light, daylight, indoors, outdoors, light box.
    Ah, you’ve probably already thought about all this!
    (I’ve never been particularly techno-adept, so I’ve never calibrated my phone camera with a gray-card as has been suggested by the savvy, so I blame myself, not my phone.)
    Awesome suggestion, didn't even think of that.
