Default Help ID'in a faucet

I'm having a problem with a sink faucet leaking and last night it got very bad and was like someone turned the handle very slightly and it was non-stop running. I was able to take the cold water handle off and tighten down the inside nut and then tighten the handle up to stop the leak for now. But I was wondering if anyone knew a web page I could use to help me ID this faucet or maybe if someone had a guess at what it may be here.

I'm pretty mechanical and with the right diagrams don't mind sitting and learning to fix stuff. I have a huge package of universal rubber seals for sink faucets but I'd rather try to ID it and buy the exact parts to replace then do a jimmy rigged fix and have it break down the line again.

Any help anyone could give would be greatly appreciated. It's an older faucet so I'm having problems locating it on the main companies pages. I'm guessing from the 1950's. I wasn't even able to find a name on it so even if someone knows where I could find a part number or name on it that be a huge help for me to research.

They're American Standard heritage. There are two types that take different faucet washers. One is just the a standard washer the other is shaped like a high hat. They're called aqua seals. http://www.amazon.com/home-improvement/dp/B00B482ZV4
