The best bet is to take an original one to the nearest hardware store 
and see what they have. Look for the smallest sheetmetal screws they 
have and work up from there. If it's a small store, maybe bring the C64 
and try them out right there.

The ones I bought work well as replacements for my original breadbox and 
C64Cs that are (now: were) missing screws.

And yes, I have a C64C from the end of 1990 that only uses screws for 
the board, everything else uses plastic clips, including the keyboard 
mount. Not that much fun to type on...
