It was made by Standard Sanitary before they merged with American Radiator and became American Standard. Your best shot is to take the part to a good parts store and check in their catalog. Standard being a popular brand, even then, it is possible that stems are still available for it. Most valves at that era did not have removable seats so if yours doesn't and the seat is bad, you will have to have the seat dressed to smooth it out.

: the tub spout and two for the shower.
: The hot water tub valve will not shut
: off completely.

: This valve has three ports. The inlet
: port. An outlet port which is not
: controlled by the valve and leads to
: the hot shower valve. And an outlet
: port controlled by the valve which
: leads to the tub spout.

: The valve has Standard written on it.
