Need Antique Bleeder Valve - Pics

Hello All-

I am in need of either a replacement bleeder valve with bleeder screw, or just the bleeder screw. Pics attached.

I have tried one of the new ones, (the shiny silver/chrome ones you can easily get), but it rattles in the threads of the antique radiator. I have also tried removing the bleeder screw from the new one and using it in the old, but its not deep enough.

I have also tried using teflon tape on the new valve and it seems to work ok, but its not mine, its my customers. I would hate for something to happen at 3 a.m. or while they are gone.

Please help! The system in not charged while we wait on this part.
