There are different sizes of these Steve.  The larger one is about 1.03+" in diameter and the smaller closer to 0.85"   Most people want the smaller size as they seem to have been more frequently used.

Thanks, Mike.  Looks like I am looking for the smaller (.85) version.

Thinking about this these are harder to find than they probably should be.  Since they are made of iron and small they are often overlooked by relic hunters.  While Mike and some others would have a much better feel for availability, I don't recall seeing many for sale at shows or in fuse groups being sold.
Best,
Carl

Agreed.   But keeping my fingers crossed anyway.
