new door knob

First of all, this site has been extremely helpful in getting my 1970's front door knob off. Now I am wondering if they sell this same style door knob (no I don't know the brand) but it has a _small_ opening where the lock goes from the door to frame. Any takers?

Hi raleigh
Glad to have been of help in past lock problems.
Without a brand name, it'll be pretty difficult to find an exact replacement.
The brand name can usually be found on the plate where the latch or bolt is located at doors edge. If it's a 70s model, you may have to scrape a bit of paint off the plate to see it.
Another way a lockset can "sometimes" be identified is by what is on the head of your key. If it's an original key, the manufacturers name would be there. But even a duplicate key will have some sort of number that may help to id it.

Sorry but the lack of information makes it really difficult to be of assistance here.
