The case of the mystery outdoor faucet cartridge

My outdoor faucet was leaking, 1970s house.

I removed the cartridge with an intent to replace. But I can’t find a similar one online. It looks like an Emco from my searches but can’t match it up. Pic attached.

Anyone have a clue what I need to order to replace this or do I have a bigger issue at hand and need to replace the whole fixture with shark bite or something?

Or do I simply need to replace all screws and washers using this kit: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/moen-e ... 1000515843

Note this is a repost from my latest in red army’s plumbing thread.

Where is the retaining nut. It does look like emco, but there are many that do

Here are a couple pics of it on the wall. I’m a bit out of my element here so not quite sure what a retaining nut is in this context.

I would not even worry about buying that repair kit. That is a soldered connection and for $4.00 more just buy yourself a new 1/4 turn valve and solder it onto the pipe.

Thank you everyone who’s been helping. Shame I can’t just go to the store and look around. Maybe one day soon. But with your guidance I’ll try the options suggested.
