Spinnaker pole socket

Hope the photos work.
This is the mast side socket for the Spinnaker pole on our 1970 Dufour Arpege.

Something is missing, but I am not sure exactly what. I think there used to be some kind of spring loaded pin to hold the pole in, but last year when we went to fly the chute I realized it was missing/lost over the winter.

Anyone know the manufacturer? Any chance of getting a spare part for this 50 year old boat?

Does anyone have the same hardware that you can send a photo of so I can figure out what's​ missing and either find or make a spare part?

Or can I replace the fitting entirely (will other fittings work with the existing pole ends)?
