Need help locating square recessed lighting trim.

Has anyone seen a replacement trim for a old 6" square recessed lighting?

I have found one for 8" and 11" (from Halo), but cannot find 6". Size of the box is 6 3/4" to be exact.
It used to have metal outside frame and glass in the middle and mounted with U shaped spring like modern recessed lighting. Forgot to take picture.

The box is manufactured by Sterling industries, but I don't see model number anywhere. It is for the aparment built in late 60's with aluminum wires.

Local electric and lighting supplier cannot locate them either.

This looks interesting:

It's designed for round can lights but looks similar to the old type and might work.

Not quiet looking to retrofitting to LED, but if that is only thing that will work, might have to go for it.

Just searched for the light you mentioned on google and it turns out my local home depot carries it.

I might buy one to test.

Thanks.

There was a post on here awhile back where someone found new 'bullhorns' or ears that fit inside the can, if you need them.
He was repairing Juno can lights.

Unfortunately, this LED trim did not work out. The trim is too small to cover the opening and spring is spaced too narrow to fit.

Might end up taking the box out and replace with regular ceiling junction box and install flush mount LED lighting. If the lighting is large enough to cover drywall opening it will be great. If not, time for drywall repair..
