Default What Cable Hanger on Buck Shaver?

I just bought a Buck Shaver frame. It needs a cable hanger for the rear canti brakes, but I am not sure which one to buy. I found one made by Tektro that looks OK (attached). Does anyone know what hanger came standard on the Buck and where to find it? Thanks!

look for mafac cable hangers on ebay. thing is: most hangers that atach to the cable collar will move when you tighten it. not a disaster, not that bad. it just happens.
i find the mafac more elegant.
wanted: ride time.

On David's Buck a MAFAC hanger was used. Dia Compe made a similar piece.
