Ran out of floss color mid project

Hoping someone out there can help!

I am halfway through a project that I was using floss from my stash from probably 20 years ago. Ran out midway and having difficulty matching the color (DMC 436) with newly purchased floss of same color number. I have spent many hours stitching a large section of solid color, so it is very noticeable. Would hate to have to frog the whole section and begin over. Was hoping someone may have an older skein of that color that they would be willing to sell me or trade for a fresh skein of same number.

    How much do you need? I have four partials (wound on bobbins) with one that looks slightly different. Also, have two full skeins. I don't know how old any of these are.
    PLUS -- I have one skein of 436 (might be a little short) that is so old that it does not have a UPC code on it.

    ALWAYS HAPPY TO SHARE OR SWAP. I have a list of colors that I am missing.
