ID of right and left front brake backing plate

I disassembled both front brakes, steering knuckles, backing plates, etc for an off body frame restoration.
Now looking at the backing plates, the holes for the pivot stud seem to be offset slightly from the 12 oclock position.
One tilted one way, the other tilted the other way. Can someone please help me with the ID of these (right or left)? This is a 64 Corvette.

Thanks in advance.

I don't have a quick answer, it has something to do with the leading brake shoe I presume, but how about the rear, do you have the rear to look at? If the rear are apart as well you can tell which is which by the e brake cable hole.
