Measuring it is helpful when you don't have a part number.

I do have some part numbers though from crystal catalogs for a 157 / 8.
(delta)2A260 This one was shown with the 8W specifically.
9A245 This one says 157/8 with no W in the catalog.
I'm not sure of the diffs between these 2. Could be the double-thick style perhaps?

The (delta) in the crystal book means...
Denotes Watch-Craft Regular Glass and Rock-Craft glass crystal. For Rock-craft include RC before the number. The 157/8W is available in both.

I searched and found the measurements for this crystal to be 26.0 x 17.3

If you really get stuck, there is always crystal houses that fit them at a good price.
