Yes the numbers are for European and the US dealers do not recognize those numbers, but they are the lenses that fit the 124 headlights 94-95 US also, I use to sell them all the time, if Bill can not get them I guess you could always call Bekkers, I know that they still have them.
I too have found that the 94/94 124 Euro lens can be
used . This make the Euro conversion easy and short money as the US version already has the H2[9003] and fog set-up.
I have found that the beam pattern on the US is kind of
a Euro copy, but not as defined a cut off. That is the lens design.
The Parts Shop price is the best I have seen, but if they don't have them, Capital lighting does for a few more $$$'s.
To the original poster-- If you are going to change out the damaged lens, might as well do both with the Euro's.
I have noticed 94/95 US lens for sale on ebay, but that is because the owners have found out about this convenient change and are buying the Euros as a replacement.
Supposedly, E code is not DOT legal, but I would not worry too much as you are improving your lighting.
