I need 2 Rivets for my motor tag. Just under a quarter inch long and I attached an image of the width. 
I can't seem to find anywhere that sells them.  Please help!

They have a 100 rivet minimum. I was hoping to buy just a few for a few dollars. If push comes to shove I will buy the 100 but would prefer not having an extra 98 lol 
Thanks for the suggestion!

You might try for brass escutcheon pins at your hardware store. They may have them in those drawer things. Also look into brass round head rivets.

What fan are these for. And diameter also will help us figure out what you need.  If I have them, I’ll gladly drop them in an envelope, but need to know exactly what you need.  And they can’t go out until next weekend.

Lane,
The diameter is 0.20 cm and it's for a Robbins and Meyers 3600 9 inch fan.

If I come up empty handed on a drive rivet, an escutcheon pin might work as Steve said.  They’re available at the hardware store. Just trim the length with a wire cutter and leave enough to tightly bend them over on the back side. That’s how the older Emerson tags are fastened.

I'll be headed to ace sometime this week hoping they have some just in case. I still have a bunch of work before completing the restoration. 
Thanks again Lane!

I bought these on Amazon. They’re soft brass that is easily cut and peined flat with a hammer. The head is also a nice round shape. Works perfectly.
