Welcome to the forums GA Red & Happy Thanks Giving.

If it were me I would use a dovetail cutter for a standard nail nick or a keyway cutter for a long pull.

Edit to include pics of what I'm talking about.

First pic is dovetail cutter and second is keyway.

The words vintage and antique are vague. Actually most words are vague. Even the word vague is vague.
