That is an Astatic 710 cartridge, The will sell you a new one for $28. And you're in Michigan too.

I got one a few years ago for a 1962 Motorola Console I sold and it was just right output for that funny little pre-amp Moto's have under their controls

I just ordered another 710 to replace a failing E-V 186 on my 1959 Zenith's V-M changer.
