I checked my copies of the two Clowes Variants and there is indeed a difference in colour between the dustjackets (I would say, a more than subtle difference - it is quite noticeable).
Variant 1 (Top Stain, Headband, Cloth Boards) has a deep Navy Coloured Dustjacket.
Variant 2 (No Top Stain, No Headband, Paper Over Boards) has a lighter Navy Coloured Dustjacket with a Slight Purple tinge to it.
The Colour of the Variant 2 Dustjacket also matches that of the Billings Printing.
There is no fading to any of the dustjackets.
