During the early 1900's, the PRR used a rivet that went into a 13/16"
hole. Does anyone know what size the Rivet was, or is?

Ed,

Are you certain the hole was 13/16" diameter or was the rivet itself that
dimension? Adopted as standard in 1917 The MCB chart shows 13/16" rivets with
a button head 1 27/64" diameter.
