Hell Gelb code 6262 and 117

I'm doing a full restoration of a 911T 1970 with color code 6262. I have done the respray inside the car, but when I am comparing with small parts with the 50 year old paint it does not match completely. The New paint seam to be more "yellow". The new paint seam to be more "yellow" than all pictures of cars with Light Yellow/Hell Gelb (6262/117) also. I also notice that color code 6262 and 117 is regarded as similar. Is this correct? Is there anybody out there with knowledge in this matter?

the codes 062 , 6262 and 117 are all the same tint for tint .
as yellows get older and fade they lose the yellow brightness as yellow is a weak tint and fades off faster . the white in the mix is a stronger tint so it makes yellows more white or lighter looking over time .
even when a color is not in direct sun light it still fades over time .
