Vintage Storm Windows


My home was built in 1940 and it has the original tilt-out storm windows. The storm windows have a pretty cool stay / lock mechanism that keeps the window tilted open and conversely, secured when it's closed (see pic).
I need to find a few more of these as some of my windows are missing them, but I can't seem to locate them anywhere. Does anyone know where I might buy some of these?

    Do you have an existing window in this jamb as well?
