Could be; the registration description is

GYPSY BOY (R. Blodgett, '78) SDB 11" M.  S. gold, F. smooth brown; bronze
beard tipped blue.

If this doesn't sound exactly like your iris, please realize that blended
tones will vary in appearance depending on soil, weather and other growing

Some people like "Art Shades" (blended tones), others don't. There are also
plenty of irises in just about every clean, pure color you can think of,
except spectrum red.
