Jeff,
When I look for the exact match for restoring my cars, I turned to:
Mr. G's Fasteners ...
5613 Elliott Reeder Rd  Fort Worth, TX 76117
(817) 831-3501
This guy has the most extensive supply of hardware I have ever seen and used him for years.
He had an extensive on-line catalogue and will send you a DVD if you expect to make additional purchases.
If you are getting down to this level of detail on your restoration, you are a man after my own heart.
People may say who cares - no one will ever see it, OH! but I will know, and feel good about it.
Have fun,
Steve B.

Jeff,
Glad Mr. G's worked out for you.
However, on a going forward basis, you might consider a 1959 Cadillac Master Parts Book.
In there you will find a description of just about every screw, nut, bolt, etc used to build the car and diagrams of each of them for naming (Fillister head screws, thanks Grant) along with: sizing - TPI - zinc - cadmium- chrome etc.
Have fun,
