That was probably me, I would like to get one as a spare. They no longer make the original stars, but were superseded by the w201/w124/w126 ones.

The difference is basically in the height of the stalk and the width of the base. Original stars had a base diameter similar to the diameter of the wreath emblem in front and on top of the grille (blue/white). Replacement stars had a narrower diameter base. So they look "tall and narrow" compared to the original "fat and low"
