EURO Headlights Identification, help please

I have 2 Bosch/Hella Euro headlights from my '72 250 , w114, which I'm having a hard time trying to find any relevant info on. Any help would be much appreciated.
They are actually 2 different makes, but similar. In the 1st pic below, the left one with a yellow signal has a circled E1 in several places. With also the numbers HCR14482R8 and an A in a square above a circled E1 with the numbers 14482R7.
The one on the right with the amber signal has a squared H4 and the numbers 27R20.
From this info and pics, could anyone tell me anything like: what specific models they would fit? How rare? How much are they worth? Again, any help is appreciated, and thanks in advance.

They fit all W114/W115 models. The H4 version uses a halogen bulb, the other one probably has a normal light bulb.

They are not rare in Europe, but they might be in the USA.

The BOSCH-one is the original MB-supplied part. The Hella is a OEM-part.
Meaning they are as good as equal in quality and performance.
The fading of the Bosch-blinker usually means it's old.
I have two new complete Hella-units lying here plus several other used ones.
Good ones are harder to find. As the picture shows, the fog-lights are painted in white, rending them useless.
Also, both main reflectors are a bit corroded.. (Should be possible to replace (with euro W123 round type though)
