Go to www.RestorationStuff.com and see page 40 in the catalog, they sell high crown bolts. I have bought from them even though I usually make my own.I don't know where theirs are made but they don't look foreign and have no markings.I guess you could ask.

Not sure about McMaster-Carr, but MSC allows you to search by "Made in USA" for hardware. Selection isn't that great though.
