If no internal paper tags, check to see if there is a small discolored area where some small rectangle 9/72 badges could have been. They were known to dry out and fall off.

Dayton tags usually stay in place.

They have tags.
They are small, but I do see a 9/72 on them. Serial # 31052

The Rob Cook books dates as follows:
9/72 badge series was in production 1972 through 1975 and was the last of the Swivo era Rogers.
1972 – Serial # underlined with no prefix
1973 - letter "A" followed by serial #
1974 - letter "B" followed by serial #
1975 – Serial #, no underline or prefix

Love them but it took a little time to get use too . Without a doubt the are unique in a good way . Still give certain Gretch kits the edge though.
