Default can anyone tell me what this kind of molding is called? and possibly where to find it

I purchased a 50's home that needs some repairs and finishing it has this baseboard running around the entire house, and I would like to replace/repair what is there to keep the charm it has. Its mostly a 1x6 board with a cap piece on it I am attaching a photo of the profile of it. I cant seem to find it in the box stores, and Ive looked on a few mill work websites with no luck..

It is a simlpe 1x with a cap moulding, finding may not be so easy,
There are mills that will make any profile you want but, they usually require a min. of 1000 lf or so, and it is not cheap.
When I was in NJ I used Dykes lumber for my specialty mouldings but not sure if they will have that one.

It's called base cap moulding. What you have there is a really old style and most likly was made by a local mill only. Every old mill had there own knives custom made.
If your lucky they may still be in business. 50 years ago no one when more then a few miles to get supplys so start looking for some lumber supplys in your area that have been around awhile.

WM 531 looks like a good match. Nice find.
