    I think you will find the tan coloured ones post war West German BGS issue. These can be found with the old wartime plastic code markings to the bottom halves, but the fine threads condem them as post war.

    Only black and very dark brown pots are bakelite, other colours are made of diffrent compound. War time pots need 1/4 turn to remove lid,post war need much more. This doesn't apply to pots with the additional screw cap in the lid
