Need a circuit breaker for our 79 Shasta... standard?

Sorry for the possibly dumb question, new to this sorta stuff!

If this were a house I'd be all set but I haven't seen a breaker that looks quite like this.

Our lower 20a breaker hums and clicks off a lot due to running a big electric heater off of the outlet most the winter which wore it out (being on the verge of popping off so long).

So, need a replacement now but not sure where to find one! Is it standard or is it some weird proprietary obsolete thing?

On mine, when I pulled the cover off to access the breaker there was a tag on the backside of the cover that listed several brands of breakers and the appropriate replacement. If yours doesn't have one, like the previous poster said, pull the old one out and take to a Home Depot, Ace, True Value, Lowe's or any other supplier and they should be able to match it. I know I am stating the obvious but turn the power off and disconnect the electric line from the source before working in your breaker box!
