Sorry, Pearl.
I don't recognize the first of the three, the "unknown," but it is somewhat similar to the authentic BLUE SHIMMER but does not appear identical to the actual cv.
CALIFORNIA GOLD is registered as a Y4D--a "dark" or rich golden yellow self.
BLUE SHIMMER is a plicata somewhat like your first picture.  It has the entire pattern laid on in dots, not lines, as this variety has.  The photo on the HIPS website, under the "Quick Fix" section, is a good image of the authenic BLUE SHIMMER.
Either the labels in this garden have gotten scrambled or someone mislabled almost all those shown.
