Default Where to find a distributor cap for Mallory dual point distributor

I am looking for a new cap for my Mallory dual point distributor for my A. Does anyone know where I might find one? I have most of the original, it was broken before I got it and I would like to try this thing out on my car.

Here are some pictures of it, its much larger than a stock Model A distributor. There is a part number on the bottom: 20104. Also shouldn't there be a pin like a stock distributor to keep it from rotating? or does it just slide in as is and the lock screw holds it in place?

I think that is a super early Mallory...it has the seat for the electrolock.
First generation, released about '29, had that and also hooked to original advance as well as having centrifugal. This one lacks the manual advance but I think is super early, and what you have is likely all you will find!
