Short time ago  I was at LOWES and bought a packet of #10-32 Hex Nuts, Twenty of them in a cellophane bag for $1.86.  Sprayed them with Rustoleum High Heat Black. Not perfect, but awful darn close.

Steve, Exactly the right answer, but I was too embarrassed to post that solution....  I made about a dozen of those nuts about 10 years ago exactly as you described... except I had a box of blued 6-32 nuts from my father in law so all I did was throw some bluing solution into the hole after tapping it out  and.... wallah instant Daisy Nut...

Gentlemen, certainly a plethora a very creative and great ideas!  I really appreciate everyone's input.  I am now confident that I will soon resolve this issue we apparently have all experienced in our years of collecting.  Thanks so much!

The thinnest nut I have is a 10/32 thread, 5/16 diameter (5/16 wrench) and is 3/32 inch thick and it is blued.  Could you measure the other nut you have and see if it is thinner than 3/32 thick, I believe this is it unless yours is thinner.

Dennis,  I think you are right.  I believe it is it!  I will shoot you an email.  Thanks!

  FYI I just noticed that the nuts on the No. 1938 RR's (made 72-79) are the same as the early models. While not blued, they could easily be enhanced and look good on an older gun.
