Moving a folder to another library loses column metadata.

Occasional Contributor

I have an Active library and an Archive library in the same SharePoint site. The Active library has columns such as Client, Project, Address, and Location. When I [MOVE TO] a folder from Active to Archive; the Client, Address, and Location metadata is transferred while Project is not. 

I've inspected the Library Settings and confirmed that the Project Column in Active and the Project Column in Archive share the same details. 

Why would the metadata for this one column not transfer over like the others do?
