Have you tried the dealer? I paid $45 for my new 450SL badge, and didn't have to worry whether it was going to be a good fit or if the chrome would start to peel in 6 months.

No luck with PP and the dealer actually said to call Germany!
Did not realize this was going to be a treasure hunt.
I'll post when I find one. Thanks for the input.

Find a different dealer - it's not like they're hard to find in SoCal. The parts desk at the dealership is perfectly capable of locating parts anywhere they might be. I've received parts that were only in stock in Germany, and I get them in less than a week.

What Scott said.
Your dealer sucks. I might be able to secure you a part number if need be but it will have to wait until Monday as I am outta town for four days.

Oh, fine, promise to get the number and then make him wait for days.

Part number for a 280SL is 107 817 00 15.

I just got a new badge for my 450SL - older than your 280SL - through my local dealer (Silver Star Mercedes in Thousand Oaks). If nothing else, give them a call. And if they give you any crap, tell them you know someone just ordered a new badge through them a few weeks ago. Or PM me and I'll drop by and order it for you today.

I called them and the 3 other dealers. Not in stock in 'parts system' nationwide. They all checked. I guess the issue is that it is a Euro model and it's an 85. They've all offered to research and get back to me as soon as they can though.

Thanks for the offer.

Almost all of the parts for my 280 come from the Fatherland. I can't believe that it would be unavailable considering some of the obscure parts I have obtained.
