There is a beautiful cable sweater in an old, probably early 60s Reynolds yarn pattern book that I have. I researched the yarn to find something comparable and to see the approximate yardage, but I can't figure out the old sizes. I figured they are different, because they list sizes 12, 14, 16 and 18, no bust sizes and it seems like 12, if the smallest, probably isn't today's size 12.

Anyone know what number sizes would be comparable to today's sizes?

This site has a size chart for 1960's patterns though they are not Reynold's patterns,  http://www.glamarama.net/knitting/patterns/spin-hints.pdf.

If there's a stitch gauge given, take the number of stitches back and front in one of the sizes and divide by sts/inch. That should give you an estimate of the finished size.
