TB2000 fret material (what kind of alloy?)

I recently acquired TB2000 #454 which is now part of the database, including several pictures. The frets (and everything else other than the staplocks) seem to be original on this bass. They are made of a brass-like colored alloy and are only slightly worn (previous owner used flatwounds). In most other pictures of TB2000's the frets appear to be silver color, just like the majority of frets on basses around the world). Were the original frets on TB2000's brass/gold/ or silver colored (or did they vary with different production runs)?

If any TB2000 owners out there could take a moment and look at the pictures of mine and tell me if your frets are similar, I'd appreciate it.
