On my (four) MB's (albeit newer than yours -- e.g., '84 through '90), I haven't seen the oil splashed that far up the dipstick. In any case, the one truest determination of oil level is (as I'm sure you know) measuring it on level ground, with the engine off (after fully warmed up) for about 2-4 minutes. The dipstick is calibrated for this amount of time delay (of "dripping" down from the upper parts).
