[Healeys] Tenax Fasteners

I have an old tonneau cover that has Tenax fasteners of mixed

Unfortunately only one of the knobs has knurling on it and even then it
does not have several concentric circles as pictured but rather only one
raised dimple in the center.

If this one knob will help you along to assembling a complete set of
something you feel to be correct I would be honored to supply it in return
for a "modern" one--just let me know.

BTW I cannot think of any other situation where I am able to say two
consecutive words with silent K's.  For that matter I can't think of too
many words with silent K's:  "Knife", "Knibbling pin", and "Knish" come to
mind but since the latter is yiddish it probably should not count.
