ItemStack serialize/deserialize

I have an ItemStack with a single piece of e.g. coal; when I call itemStack.serializeNBT I get:



When I then try to deserialize the tag I get:



I found that deserializeNBT calls new ItemStack(compound); it calls Item.getByNameOrId("minecraft:coal")  which returns 1xitem.coal@0. For some reason,  this fails and causes ItemStack to have 1xtile.air@0 :

this.item = Item.getByNameOrId("minecraft:coal");

This works, however:

itemStack = new ItemStack(Item.getByNameOrId("minecraft:coal"));


Am I doing something wrong calling

nbt.setTag("mystack", itemStack.serializeNBT());

    public NBTTagCompound serializeNBT()
        NBTTagCompound ret = new NBTTagCompound();
        return ret;

    public void deserializeNBT(NBTTagCompound nbt)
        // TODO do this better while respecting new rules
        final ItemStack itemStack = new ItemStack(nbt);
        this.stackTagCompound = itemStack.stackTagCompound;
        this.capNBT = itemStack.capNBT;


So effectively, that's what those methods already do...
