    I don't quite understand this part:

    Are you reffering to the solutions of chlorine and bromine or the AgCl and AgBr formed?

    AgCl and AgBr look quite similar, but AgBr is slightly yellowish in comparion to AgCl.

    And you were judging this just based on precipitate color? This doesn't seem like a very definitive method of analysis.
