Default ASK Persimmon

Hi all, I need help on color identification. I know Kugler is making a lot of the old ASK colors and the old Persimmon is now called Cherry Candy Red. My problem is I have two old rods of Persimmon that are a bright orange on the outside and have a darker red center. I also have a bunch of the same colored rods but no darker center. When I melt the unmarked ones the color turns into a dark orange red. Does anybody have any idea if these are the same color rods? Hope this doesn't sound to confusing.
Thanks for any and all help.
Roberta

This is scarlet dreams. Solid colored rod with no rings or mottling, just slightly darker when melted. HTH.
