    I would like to identify a shower valve, installed about 1982.
    My guess is that it is a ceramic disc variety; no leaks in 30 years.
    But the trim is starting to tarnish, and I would like the option of
    replacing the trim. I would also like to get some spares for disc (or cartridge?).
    Several photos:

    There are no splines visible, nor the end of the stem; the trim sleeve appears
    to fit over the end of the stem, and the acrylic knob fits via a oval with two flat sides.

    Any assistance much appreciated. I am reluctant to remove the trim sleeve wthout having a replacement ready to replace it.
