~1950's Aluminum Awning Window Weatherstripping

A home owner from Fort Myers says:
I'm trying to identify the attached weatherstripping for some circa 1950s awning windows. The size of the base is approx. 3/16 as best I can tell, although it seems to have a slight bend to it. You'll see the bubble or whatever was actually being compressed is no longer there, so no idea of the size. Not sure if the bubble weatherstrip will work, or if there is something else out there.

Thanks!

I pulled another bit that shows how the buffer part works. Hard to say how tall it is, but it measured 1/16 from top of foundation that would slide into track to the top of the 'bubble'. Thanks!

I'm afraid we don't have this vinyl weatherstripping, but in your case you can consider our 58-021. See what you think.

Thank you! Are there different properties to the bubble weatherstrip versus the wool pile weatherstrip?

I personally find that they each perform the same job equally well. Assuming the wool pile is the same size then I think you'll be okay.
