I have been looking and looking to find a sheet metal screw to match the existing screws on my steel roof.

The photos I've attached don't do a good job of representing the color. I was wondering if the letter "I" that is stamped into the hex head gives a clue to the brand/manufacturer of the screw.

Any ideas for me?

Thanks.

Paint stores can match the color and that paint can be put into a spray paint container. I've seen them but never used them. Some cabinets were being installed in a bank and the guy had a bottle to match any scratches.

Also note, old screws will have faded so even if you find the mfg, may not match.

Never mind that the colors in those two pics don't match.
Maybe I have a building where the trim is a different color than the walls. Therefore each would have a different color screw

OR

I took one of the photos under different kelvin temperatures and the screws would appear different to the human eye

OR

One photo was taken with the camera flash enabled and the other was a long exposure without the flash

OR
