Thanks a lot.
For some reason the link is broken, but I was able to google the site and sent him a message.

Sorry, that first link should have been:

http://www.vintagevibe.com

They sell reproductions, but may have an inventory of good used keytops.

Thanks again. I emailed both of them. They don't have it listed tho. I have done business with both before.

Also know as a pratt-read black full skirt key. Anybody has a source for these? I already ordered a full key from vintagevibe, but I would prefer to replace only the key top.
Thanks!

I received the full key from vintage vibe and was able to easily remove the key cap and fit it on the old key. Perfect!
The piano is now for sale.
