A little bit of information here on "Hammer Drive Rivets" or "easy drive screw nails". There seems to be a lot of confusion as to what exactly to call them.

Steve, I recall the "drive rivets" you mentioned with the protruding pin that you hammer down to spread the bottom of the rivet. I got a sample from a parts vender at the c.1953 NY Auto Show where, at that time I believe, they were a new item. My Dad let me have the sample plate with three drive pins in various states of being driven plus loose and said "I bet you will lose it" but I still have it.
