    That's a Honeywell "Unique" valve. No direct replacement has been available for decades. What problems do you have with them?

    If all the radiators still have those valves on them, you have a real gem on your hands. Any photos of the boiler and associated piping?

    Here are a couple of informational pieces on the Honeywell "Unique Valve". I have these throughout my house up here in Laramie, Wyoming. They are difficult to com by in salvage and you will have to be pretty persistent to find any. I have never found a suitable New replacement. I found some a few years ago out East with a plumber but they had not salvaged the elbows which is what I really needed since a plumber discarded those when doing some work at our house.
    I have not actively looked for some time and need to do that. If I find any I will post again.

    Try Tunstall, 4135948695, they make valve inserts for lots of valves, worth a try.
