Campagnolo Brake Cap Nut. Where to find?

I lost the cap nut from a Campagnolo Super Record caliper. I believe its technically called the "mounting nut." Its the outermost nut on a Super Record caliper. Is this a standard cap nut that I can find at most hardware stores? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is a standard metric thread, yes. Will you find one to look good, no. Most Campy small parts were made especially for them. Good luck and try ebay.

A decent hardware store will have a stainless steel metric acorn nut to fit, which will polish up very nicely with a little bit of work.
