Paint code

Hi, I have a '97 F-150 in silver. I wanted to pickup some touch up paint for it today and got a bottle of Silver frost CC, is this the same colour I have on my truck?

Unfortunally when I went to pickup the paint I was not driving the truck. Anyhow, when I got home I looked on the door jam and saw Exterior paint RC |DS0

Thanks for the reply

I went to the dealer today (across the street) just to double check. Turns out that i was looking at the wrong place on the tag (I looked across where it said exterior colour, instead of above it).

The silver is indeed colour code TS or Silver frost CC
