repair beveled glass lens for railroad oil lamp

The lamp fell and two pieces of beveled  glass were broken.  The front lens was a diameter and I used a piece of old mirror because of the color. The newer glass has a very dark green color to the edge.  The antique glass has a yellow not the green edge.  I have repaired many Rail Road lights over the years. I used cast iron grinding mill to rough in the bevel.
