Seal is an almost black coat.  It will have Black roots with the hairs looking almost like they have been Highlighted(banded) with Brown or red. Nose and Liner are black.
Sable is more the opposite of Seal.  You will have a light root from fawn to red and the hairs will be banded with black, looking like the tips have been highlighted.  The pattern is also darker at the spine and head and lightens as you move downward on the body.  Sometimes Sables will be confused with Tri's. While they both come from the A locus which causes crossover sometimes, they are 2 different colors.  As always if you are unsure DNA test before claiming color.
