I need to replace sweep on my front door. The problem is that I don't currently have one on there so I have nothing to take to the hardware store to say, "I need this" so I'm hoping to get some help here. My house was built in the mid-1950s and from perusing the store it seems like what I need isn't very common anymore.

Here are some pictures of the bottom of the door and the threshold.


Bottom of door

What type of sweep do I need for this threshold? And where can I get it or should I replace the threshold and sweep altogether?

I was unable to find any parts for this so I ended up replacing the threshold entirely with something like this.
