Expecting identical colors from these two monitors may be asking too much, but the CLS CoCo colors are pretty darn close with proper adjustment of the Magnavox monitor brightness and contrast.
The most noticeable difference is CLS4 "red" which is quite red on MESS but has some orange content on the Coco3. CLS2 "yellow" seems to have a slight greenish tint on the Coco3 compared to MESS.
The other colors are essentially identical. The MESS colors seem very slightly more saturated but that is probably monitor differences.


I agree with this assessment...

Is it true that MESS is right and PC-6001VW is wrong?

PC-6001 uses M5C6847-1, not use MC6847.
Of course it is compatible with MC6847, but Not same.

I think MESS's font for PC-6001 is Wrong.
Also did you check this on real machine?
