Any will do. On this type of older style chain they're all the same. BUT - try not the push the rivet fully through. Leave some still 'in the hole' and 'snap' the chain apart so that it it easier to reattach it for re-rivetting.

Yes that worked, any rivet, trickiest part was getting it back in and loosening up the connection.

Just bend it side to side each side of the join.
