Looking for ink formula for Pantone 7462

Apparently I do not have the latest expensive pantone book and my client wants pms 7462 so I don’t have the mixing formula. If anyone has it could they please list it. I went to pantone.com but I couldn’t find it - they list all the other formulas CMYK, RGB, HEX but not the ink formulas.

Pantone’s website indicates that a CMYK formula would be 77, 33, 9, 11. That’s for uncoated paper, but it’s also probably for offset — if you’re printing it letterpress, even with a very thin ink film, the color will probably be darker than the swatch in a Pantone book You may need to add some white to bring it up to a close match.
