Hi, I have a DEC computer lab, but no cables. It

Are the mini-banana plugs the best modern replacement available? Are
pics of the original plugs available?
The mini-banana works OK, and I don't know of anything better that is
still available. A hundred of them (50 patch cables) won't be cheap.
The photos get a little bigger if you click them. Those bits of stamped
brass or whatever they are made of were probably pennies each.
