Matching Old Half Round Gutter Hangers and Updating Gutter Positioning

I recently moved to an old family house (built ca. 1888). I need to repair / replace several gutter sections and hangers. The gutters are 5" half round galvanized steel.

Most of the hangers appear to be original based on old pictures. It appears to be a bent rod that was used to wire up the gutter and sometimes to run a wire to a secondary hook above the gutter. A current picture is shown below.

Is there a currently available hanger or period appropriate hanger that is similar?

Where can I find information about or what is a good reference for ideal positioning of gutters?

Thanks,
Chris

Since there is no fascia board, you probably need the gutters the use straps that are nailed into the roof. I doubt that you can match what's there.

I've decided to simply make more of the style originally used on the house. I do, however, still need to consider re-positioning the gutters as they came down due to ice.

The most consistent recommendations I can find are relative to the extended roof plane. Are recommendations about vertical clearance to the extended roof plane typically minimums or targets? Where should the edge of the shingles be relative to the center of the gutter?

Thanks,
Chris
