Hey Jim, the knowledge base here is obviously top drawer! Appreciate you all for your time helping others out. The reason I left open the possibility for a blue mag on the Citation was from a post from Mr. Stimson on 5-17-11 that mentioned a transition to blue at 08-18-59, and another post dated 05-17-11 that mentioned that early 102s would have cadmium.
