Lightning Rods - Where to buy?

Where can you buy lighting rods? I recently replaced my roof and am missing one, so I wanted to replace them all. I can not seem to find them anywhere. Here is a pic of what I got. They are about 10 1/4" in length. Thanks!

Your best bet would probably be an antique market. Not many modern installations to my knowledge, although I have run across some in higher elevations near me.

So-called "lightning rods" are common in areas that have a high incidence of lightning. Do a Google search for air terminals to find out more.
