1950 Engine Paint Question

I just started painting my engine and am using the official Buick turquoise paint I got from oldbuickparts.com. I noticed that the manifold and engine paint is a different shade than the valve cover. The engine paint appears to be more blue than the valve cover which appears to more of a green.

My question is, does anyone know if there's a different color for the valve cover or should it be the same as the engine? I've attached a picture of my engine prior to painting and you can see the difference in shades. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Its all the same color. All sprayed at the factory at the same time. You might try Bill Hersch paint

Thanks. It looks like someone painted the valve cover a different color after the fact. I'll paint it with the Buick turquoise. I used Bill Hirsch paint on the exhaust manifold, stuff works great! I'll post some pictures when I'm done.
