Bronze colored rivets

Anyone know where these can be located?

Airstream used brown rivets, but never bronze.

If you're looking for raw, hardened, solid rivets they are usually treated with alodine which gives them a bronze or golden tint.

The bronze wall attachment mounting brackets are faded out brown.

Airstream never used bronze wall attachments.

After 40 years, the anodizing has somewhat faded, which is not uncommon.
