Thanks for posting. This is a very old pin! We may still be able to help, though. Could you give us the thickness of the part of the pin that goes into the frame? I would also like to know the width of the screen frame itself.
A home owner from Riverton, NJ says:
The pin is 1/4 inch in diameter. The screen is 1 3/4 inches wide.

Hmm... the longest pin we carry is our 70-206. It's made to go into a screen frame that's 1" wide. Take a look and see if you can adapt that to your window.
