Looking for regular / dustproof crowns, as described below, and would appreciate your help!

Pink, tap 10, approx 5.8mm x 1.5mm. Similar to the following, which is missing from my other 400:

How about pink tap 8? (A correct stem should make it tap 8.)

Does it help if I mention that this one is for the permanent collection?

I think it is not easy to find these. I have been looking for these slim crowns too, but seems you need to find old stock. Some watchmakers (the ones with many drawers) have these in their spares.
