#20 Curtain Carriers like these?

In the midst of a quicky refurbishment of our new '63 GT, I've encountered a mystery that even has Tammy, the Airstream curtain lady puzzled. Our trailer has what looks to be the original curtains and tracks, but rather than the usual snap carriers, they appear to use tubular rivets.

The track opening seems to be too wide to utilize the snap carriers... Tammy is sending me a sample to test out. The heads of the rivets are slightly larger than 1/2" and the slot in the track is slightly wider than 5/16"

Look familiar to anybody??? if so, what have you done for a replacement? I am anxious to get Tammy started...our fabric choice should go a long way to brighten things up.
