baseboard BTU size

Hello

I am trying to find how much sq ft or BTU/ft on baseboard steam pipe 1 1/4" with fins. Look like a slant fin style but it is not. I have 4, 5,6.8 feet in length.
I have found various BTU values from 1650 to 2250 on 2 psi. Any additional help or a chart. Once again thank you.

    How big are the fins and what is the spacing?

    Hello
    The fins are I think 3"x3" about 1/4" spacing. Thank you

    Info from a 1955 print: 1 1/4" steel pipe--4 1/4" square steel fins--1/4" spacing. That equals 6.9 EDR per foot X 240 = 1656 BTU/ft.
