Riders' memories, as Patfey has noted, are often notoriously unreliable, they often get really simple things wrong, but that is forgivable, after all, these things happened decades ago, but that is why we must be cautious in treating their recollections as fact.
Actually, instead of “forgivable” I would say “fully understandable”. Do you remember the color and the style of the suits you wore ten (or twenty, or fourty) years ago to work? In fact, the memory of the spouses who washed those jerseys, might even be more reliable.
I remember when Jan interviewed Staf De Smet asking if there ever was a black Groene Leeuw jersey (you know, like in these 1965 Maple Leaf chromos). He did not really know, she was certain : never.

Very true, as to riders and their memories, I spoke to Stan Brittain a couple of years ago and asked him about one of his Peace Race rivals, Viktor Kapitonov, Stan didn't even recall the name Kapitonov, never mind being able to tell me anything about him.

I fully agree with Patfey and Steponas.

The best which can happen is that Manuel's friend has a colour picture of the jersey (and not a picture which is coloured afterwards which exist also).

So Manuel, you are still welcome on this forum.

yes Manuel, still welcome.
I had not the intention of doubting your friends opinion, but I would like to see the jersey itself in a coloured photograph.
so we would solve a problem that exists.
