JE Piston Ring identification

I started to gap the piston ring sets for a +2mm bore (78mm) on my Gen3 but i cant tell the difference between the top & second rings they are different minimums but measure exactly the same 1 is charcoal grey & the other more of a cooper colour. They came in small packets with the 2 oil seat rings & the oil ring. Does anybody know how to spot the difference?

second ring is induction ring and is the dull charcoal grey ductile cast iron ring. lighter steel ring is top compression ring. if ring is marked with a dot or stamp near ring gap, that side of ring up toward piston crown.
