need 1 1/8 locknut for threaded headset

Does anyone have an orphan 1 1/8 headset locknut that they don't need? It needs to be steel, and of the type type without a plastic seal around the stem, or to have a seal that can be removed and replaced. I'm doing a modification that requires a little brazing, so the ideal locknut candidate would have some sort of removable black finish, as opposed to chrome plating that would have to be stripped somehow.

I can offer common trade goods in return
