I don't have an answer to your question but a related one...

I am going to be doing some repointing on my home (built in the 1930s). What type of mortar mix should I use? Is type N a good choice?

Also, does anyone have any experience matching colors? The big box stores only have a couple colors, so trying to find a specialty store.

Welcome to the forums q!
Probably type N mortar with white sand. Type N is what is normally used with brick.
Color matching mortar takes some skill a long with some trial and error.
