Post subject:  9d Jubilee Government Parcels Specimen Colors

I have two 9d Jubilee Government Parcels Specimen type 9 stamps in different shades. Does anyone know the correlation between the 16 Government Parcels over-printings on this stamp between July 1888 and January 1902 and the shade combinations? Curiously and unhelpfully, the shade identifications in S.G. Specialized and Wiseman don’t agree exactly and in the Specialized, the shade of the Government Parcels stamp (L28/S.G. O67) is described differently from the three under the main listing (K38). Also does anyone know how often and when the specimen markings were applied? Thank you.
