There were many colors and flavors of type NM cables from years past. I've seen blue, white, black, brown, green, tan, and a couple of others I can't think of. Each manufacturer had their own color schemes and even changed them from time to time.

As stated in another post, there are no mandated color codes, even today.

Most manufacturers have voluntarily adopted the white = 14, yellow = 12 and orange = 10 gauge coding system, however.
