I had trouble with my original ones being re-chromed…the chroming was too thick in places and the hinges wouldn’t move smoothly through their rotation.
I can recommend the hinges that AH Spares sells. They look right, operate properly and are marked left and right. This may be why they cost more.

They are not marked as LH or RH. If you put two of them side by side, a left hand and a right hand, it will then become very apparent.
