Guys can anyone tell me the size of the lanyard ring on a C96 pre war commercial please ?

I have just got one serial number 41796 but it's missing the lanyard ring so I am desperately trying to find a replacement so your help would be greatfully appreciated.

When I get the pistol home in about 2 weeks due to the firearms laws here in Australia I will put up some pics as I will undoubtedly have more questions for you wfw.

This is my first C96 & I am very excited about it.

Thanks for your help.
All the best.

Mauser didn't fool around with the ring much. They're all pretty much identical, a split ring like modern keyrings, round cross-section, no finish (just plain old steel, not blued). ID about .670" (17.0mm), OD about .860 (21.8mm).
