Fastners for asbestos shingles to sheet rock

Have a 50's house. The outside sheeting is black sheet rock. There are asbestos/cement shingles attached with special fastners.
I was told that they are stainless steel "nail" that resembles a cotter pin. When hammered thru the shingle into the sheet rock, the loop gets mashed and opens up the split end, holding the shingle to the sheet rock. I was told they were called ES Nails.
Where can I get some?

Thanks so much.

I went to the site an those seem that will do the job.

There are not the same what is currently used on my house but close enough.

The odd thing is that 20 years ago I was able to locate some of the original fasteners and the supplier called them ES nails which is what this company is called. Probably the same company.

Thanks again
