Default Are these domed rivets?

Can anyone tell if these are double sided domed rivets used on the RCA LMI 32216 amps to attach the octals on both ends of the amp.
There are photos here that show them.

Or what they are and where I could buy them. Would they be like ones used in leather work?

I doubt they're double sided domed rivets, as rivet setts would be needed to fit them rather than a simple press.

Most likely hollow ended rivets similar to these:-
