Default is Albert Blue rare

Is Albert Blue considered a rare color early (long hood) Porsches. Does anyone know the production numbers of Albert Blue?
Thanks in advance.

Maybe this is an already known source, but I just stumbled across it and found it interesting to be able to compare the various shades side by side.

That's a great link, thanks for that! I think my favorite is arrow blue, with a black Carrera rocker decal.

Another site that contains most Porsche colours through the years: http://www.elferclassic.de/technik/f...lack-braun.php
My 1983 SC is Rauchquarz Metallic (code 662). Pictures to come soon (It is being restored & repainted)

funny, my Dad as a kid in the early 30s used to call the drug store and ask if they had prince albert (tobacco) in a can. When the druggest said "yes" my Dad shouted into the phone "well let him out!!"
