Someone broke off the hood ornament to my 1997 Cadillac Deville and I am having trouble finding a replacement. Will not one of the later years, say 2000 or 2004 fit the hood?

I have tried many different Cadillac dealerships and autoshops and they all say the 1997 is not longer made but I am wondering if one of the later year models might actually still work?
Hello and good evening.
Would you be interested in obtaining a used ornament for a 1997 Deville if it was available?
Your JA Expert,
Yes I would, gold to match the Gold Edition Deville I currently own.
Ok, I found a silver ornament for you, I'm looking for a gold one right now.
Ok, I've been searching and I'm giving you what I found so far.
That is a used gold ornament
Here is a used silver ornament
1997 appears to be its own design. I'm trying to find if 98 or 99 is the same. I'm going to send these to you now. I will correspond with you one more time with additional choices or info that I find. Give me about 15 minutes.
That is a hard to find part. I looked everywhere. 1997 stands alone. 1997,1998,1999 may be the same. I am finding some conflicting information though. Here is what I recommend, purchase a silver ornament, then you can have it gold plated. Here is a link of one of these companies. Check with the local car dealerships around you, they should be able to recommend a company that will plate it for you. That will get everything looking the way it should for a very affordable price.
I can tell you 1993-1996 are the same, and 2000-2005 are the same. You need one in between. I would be cautious though, the mounting is where the difference would be a problem
