Hello! This is an old pivot shoe. We may be able to replace it, but I will need to know the width and thickness of this shoe. I recommend removing it from the window to make sure your measurements are as accurate as possible. I would also like to see the pivot bar that interacts with this shoe, to make sure we find something compatible.

Thank you! Were you able to measure it for us? We will need to know its exact width and thickness.
A quick learner from North Attleboro says:
The width is 1 1/4 and the thickness is 17/32 or 1/2 likely
Total height is 2 inches

Thanks! Well, we have two options. See the 15-015, which is 17/32" thick, and the 15-046, which is 1/2" thick. Now, both of these look different, but I think they'll still work. They are both compatible with spiral balances, which you have, and both are compatible with the same style pivot bar I see in your second set of pictures (our 26-040, for reference. this looks like a very close match to yours). As long as you can get one that's the right size for your jamb track, you should be okay.
