Current Simpson brush are sold in red boxes.  In what year did they transition from Gray to Red?  Does anyone know the period that (years) that Gray was used?  I am trying to approximately date a brush.  Thanks.

Actually, to my recollection, they moved from a light Grey to a Green-Grey to the Red Box. The light Grey box is about 2011 and earlier, the green grey 2011-2014, and then the red.
