'59 Two Tone Paint Decode

Trying to decode cowl tag for correct two tone paint. From info I've researched I believe it indicates Snowcrest White over Crown Sapphire Metallic, and interior trim code is turquoise cloth and vinyl. The body was already primed when I got it, but original inside door jambs appear to be a lighter blue than even Frost Blue according to the paint chip chart. Also the interior appears to be blue and white instead of turquoise and white. I'm just concerned if I order the Crown Sapphire and it definitely doesn't match the door jambs. No real biggie, I just want it to be correct per the cowl tag. Any advice would be appreciated.

Yes I'm trying to make it look factory original, and I've got to believe it's the factory paint that looks lighter than the paint chip chart. Of course paint is going to fade over time but what looks like a lighter, less turquoise shade is inside the door jambs where it wouldn't be exposed to sunlight or the elements. I was hoping not to have to paint the door jambs but probably will. I found some good pics of a beautiful '59 survivor with original paint the exact same two tone colors and will post a pic here. It definitely looks darker than what I see in the door jambs on mine so I'll see if I can get a sample from The Coating Store before ordering what I need for the job.
