Bleeder valves stolen!! Grr...

we just purchased a new home. 2 days before we closed the copper was stolen. It wasn't as bad as it could be and my husband is a contractor so we decided to purchase the home anyway. The house was built in 1920 and is radiator heating. We are very excited to have this kind of heating! However, we discovered yesterday that not only did they get away with the copper but the "bleeder valves" on the radiators were stolen.

My husband calls them bleeder valves. I don't know anything about radiant heating. I guess these were made of brass and they got away with about 10 of them.

Can anyone point me in the direction of how to replace those parts? I google "bleeder valves" and I don't really come up with much.

Does this make any sense to anyone? I've never dealt with radiators before so I'm not sure what to do. Thanks!!
