The proverbial unicorn search.
Seriously I wish you luck. I tried EBay DE and UK with no results this morning.
EBay.AU maybe.

Thanks for the help rowdie. I will check eBay AU. I did reach out to SL Shop in UK with no success. Waiting to hear back from a german contact. I suspect it will turn up when I least expect. Hard to believe its so hard to find.

Thanks reno4u2 I saw that one. The one for 107 seems to have 3 prongs on back. The 113 has 2 (I think). I was tempted to try.

Yes. Most 107s have three prongs on the back. Just looked at my 280SL badge compared to a spare 500SL badge. The 280 does not have the part number on the back while the 500SL does.

And I just checked my 280s parts car, and that, like the pagoda, had just two clips. WTB: 280 SL Trunk/Boot Emblem-imageuploadedbyautoguide1439856659.952291.jpg

I think my w108 280se is the same.
