Does anyone know where you can get the screws/pins that were used to attach the label plates to older lathes?

I have a Southbend 9" Workshop Model C lathe (don't know the year yet) that I bought "in the box(es)" and the label plates are there, but only one of the screws/pins are present.

I've been told these are called either drive pins or escutcheon pins, but I haven't had any luck locating them locally or through an online search.

They have a domed head and a helical thread (more like an endmill than a screw). . .they are the type that you would smack with a hammer and they would "thread" themselves in.

Thanks for the help!!!
