W116 Hood Ornament Year Change

Hi Guys

Can someone please tell me what year they changed the hood ornament holes on a w116?

i have a 73' 450SE and im switching grilles from a 79 450SEL except the 79' grille frame is missing the good ornament.


Im afraid my 73' hood ornament wont fit on the 79th frame??


also, are all w116 grilles interchangeable? including 300sd models?

thanks

I think, it was changed in 1973.
What is chassis-Nr. of your 450 SE?
