From the photo it looks like a W123 grille. The sides of the W124 taper in comparing the top to the bottom. Maybe its just a lousy photo so yes, part number comparison or match up on the car is probably best.

Holding it alongside your current 124 should tell you something John.

the pictures of W123 grills I see appear to have a angle where the badge is while the 124 grills are flatter there.

123 grill:


124 grill:


(couldn't find one shot straight on in the same aspect ratio ;-/)

AHH, the 123 grill has fewer vertical supports for the plastic horizontal slats!
