I run into this frequently (mis-identification of slate roofs).
When we propose new roofs in the St. Louis, MO area, we offer new NC Black as a replacement (full roof) of the old, failing PA Black roofs. Obviously the PA Black is disposed of.

Too bad your slate broker mis-identified it. Walter is correct.

I don't think you can hurt it any more than the 100 years have already.

I have a Queen Anne with 100 yr old slate and the back half is near the end which is where the sun hits it. I sent in a sample to the slate broker and he said it was NC unfading black so I bought 100 pieces for repairs. The trouble is that is stands out like a black tooth. When I turn over the old slate it is the same colour as the new. Do I go with a lighter shade to match even if it is not the correct slate. Cost is not an issue.
