True, the part of the W124. I was so busy trying to find an origin behind that very difficult-to-read label in the back that I dropped the ball on production year, presuming it must have been commissioned for the 100 year anniversary. Kind of makes sense  to NOT do that a couple of years AFTER, haha. Guess they did still.
Nothing much to fake there, since it's clearly not an official MB issue of any kind, just handicraft from Rottal-Inn. If you do some more searches for KBB and Rottal-inn, you'll find that a lot of stuff that comes from there is quite collectable.
I wouldn't mind having it hang on my wall, if only it said "1978", like the rest of my little museum-to-be

OK, cool.
I am looking for 77-78 German issues, and it's a slow process getting them all without paying 25-50 bucks each, -which is crazy expensive!

And on that note: This seller has just listed a bunch of W116 parts. May be worth a browse.

It's not always easy to decided what could be interesting to others here at the forum.
This guy just sent me a 375 euro offer, and I didn't even ask him for anything

He might accept an even lower counteroffer.

https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/windabweiser-mercedes-benz-alt/1451554465-223-1788

NOS Sunroof deflector for W116 with seal.
Now, he says 'pickup only", but with an extra 10 bucks, on top of the 20 he asks, and 20 for international shipping inc tracking, One could persuade him and obtain this thing for 50 bucks all-in, delivered to your door.
That would not be a bad deal, me thinks. Might even get lucky and persuade him without extra cost, and ship for 16 bucks without tracking, like i always do, leaving but 36 bucks all-in

An information for those who do not speak German: only the sunroof deflector and the seal are sold there, but no assembly material!

And of course I have nothing to do with the seller! :)
350SE (silver) from 1979 (sun roof, air condition, central locking, Becker Mexico, ....)

Indeed. But since there would be more replacement deflector installs, rather than freshly installed sunroofs, the missing brackets in this kit would be on the car already. :D
