paint code needed

This is the color I want to repaint the 71 280se conv. Would someone mind giving me the code or whatever, so I can tell the paint shop?

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

Mercedes have several different silvers .
The paint is listed under 3 digit codes. On your car look at the metal plate on the radiator support panel. There will be a 3 digit number followed by either a "G" (Glasurit) or an "H" (Herbert).
You need to get a copy of the Glasurit Mercedes color chart and work from there.
There are a couple here as an example.
