That is slick, but it does not show me units that were sold in 1990. That is what I need.

If you don't mind me interjecting, but something from 1990 has served its purpose well. Why not just replace it with a spanking new $50 faucet?

I know that this solid brass widespread faucet was expensive, and a replacement widespread of this quality will also be expensive. I prefer it retain the design that will continue to match the tub valve. From what I am seeing, it would take $250 to $500 to replace it. It would be hard replacing with a lower quality unit. Furthermore, I find it hard to trash something that needs only a replacement part.

The two links in post ten, send them pictures and measurement and count the broach splines and see if they can figure it out.

I did. When unsuccessful, the hardware store had a better O-ring supply. I will send images to EdYoungs.

I appreciate the suggestions. So far, official company representatives say it is not Grohe, Rohl, or AquaBrass. I am still awaiting Young's answer.
