I'm the lucky one as having worked in aviation I have a set of the authentic ones. In fact at one time I purchased over 700 from gov't assets. All are long gone and that was B4 internet, back then the method of choice was 'Trade-A-Plane'. You also need a notch to prevent rotation, usually a 'key seater tool' was used. Do U simply file a notch?.
