The Medium Green Is the Message
If green is the color of money, serious Fiesta collectors will need to be glowing with it to collect this color of vintage Fiesta. Introduced in 1961, it was the last color in the original Fiesta dinnerware line. HLC reinstated red in 1959, but by this time the company was sharply reducing production of Fiesta. Rose, gray, chartreuse and dark green were discontinued in 1959, as were many individual pieces.
In order to distinguish it from the other greens, collectors sometimes refer to medium green as "John Deere green" because of it's similarity to the John Deere line of green-painted tractors. Because of the smaller production and sales, today medium green has become the most highly prized and valuable of the colors.
The Collector's Encyclopedia of Fiesta by the Huxford's observes the cream soup in medium green as an extremely desirable item.
