Brooks saddles
 
I have a B-72 Brooks saddle. One of the rivets along the rear perimeter of the saddle has "gone missing". There is no cracking or enlargement around the hole. It apparently just fell out. Is this replaceable and if so, how, what, where, etc.?

Also, I've landed a 1959 Raleigh Dawn(?) Tourist. What was the Brooks saddle model to be found on this bike?

I buy my spare Brooks parts from Wallingford Bicycle Parts

I would guess that a Dawn Tourist came with either a B72 or a B66.

The 1958 Dawn Tourist looks like it came with a B-66.

Brooks sells spare rivets, I just bought some from a local hardware store and replaced the rivets. I lost a rivet in the front so I was forced to replace all the rivets:
