The item in this auction, an army coffee pot, has the same shape as Manos' 777 coffee pot:

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Antiques-collectables/Militaria/Other/auction-704276758.htm

The description for 1802 is '"Classic" Coffee Pot'.

It would be surprising if an army coffee pot was not at least stoneware.
There are no spare coffee pot descriptions in vitrified ware (1600s).

This would give us some idea of the meaning of "Classic" in the descriptions.

(I am aware that the 1809 Classic Gravy Boat shape may put the kibosh on this idea.)

From research I gather that this "Classic" stands for the new Aurora Stoneware range which has all new shapes from 1980/81.  There is a photo of the coffee pot on the site ....

I've noticed a few times that the old three digits were used long after 1964.

So we have no other number for the Army coffee pot then.

It remains 777 and "earthenware".

Very surprising, but then again there are plenty of 1000 to 1599 coffee pots I suppose.
