Anyone know what these door handles / latches might be?

I am trying to replace three of these door latches/knobs on my 1983 Dufour 12000 CT.

They are not labeled and I cannot find them anywhere on the Google.

Anyone come across these in their travels?

Thanks!

The first appears to be a "brass ball catch" available in different sizes, here's one source for reference.

Thanks, they are actually the same latch. The knob up front and the other part is inside the cabinets. Thanks!

Can't figure out how to edit my original post again but these 2 pictures are the front and reverse of the same latch/knob. When you turn that knob the bolt inside moves up and down and secures the cabinet.

I see, I believe it's a type of "round mortise thumb screw latch" haven't seen any like yours for a while but here's some similar and now you got some new search terms.

If they are not broken/stripped, just clean them, give them a quick polish and replace the grease and get another 35ish years out of them. ;^)

Thanks! Proper terminology definitely helps with the searching.

I'm a big believer in 'if it ain't broke don't fix it.' I've rebuilt all of them on the boat but have three that are missing bits and aren't serviceable.
