Early BJ8 Armrest Latch

Group,
I am working on an early BJ8, first day of production. It has an armrest which you can lift the top and store items. The armrest I have no longer has the latch. Does anyone have a picture of the latch?
Thanks
Jerry

Hi Jerry. There wasn't a latch. It was a magnet in the lid that meets the curved metal section in the front of the compartment

I finally found an old post that indicated it was a magnet. And reviewed that with Tahoe Healey who has a car the same year. I have not made the magnet latch yet, but my wife is putting new vinyl on it and it is starting to look great. We already covered the cardboard box inside with black felt. Looks similar to the fuzz on the inside of the glove box now.
