Welcome to the forums.

Post up a thread in the electrical section. They will find them for you in a heartbeat is my guess.

Those look like Bulldog pushmatic. E-bay is one option if looking for used/original, Connecticut Electric UBI is another if looking for new replacements.

Should be able to get them thru one of your electric supply houses.
If not, Amazon has a complete line.
Here is a link to one of them.
http://www.amazon.com/Connecticut-El...rcuit+breakers

Edit: A lot of the Pushmatic panels are a split bus, so the upper breakers remain hot, unless you have a master disconnect somewhere else. The lower breaker positions are shut off by one of the upper breakers. Be sure the breaker position is dead by testing before attempting to unscrew the breaker.
If you are not sure about it, call an electrician.

I hated that about mine. The 240V breakers are on the top bus and you have to work them hot or pull the meter.

How many amps are you looking for? Single or double pole?


Keep in mind these breakers are no longer made, so the replacements will look different.

Look under "pushmatic":
