Straight is early. Raised center bolts are later intakes.

People too often get the early and late manifolds confused.  I recently looked at another crossram that was supposed to be an early intake but the bolt holes looked raised to me so I asked the guy who had it to check with an intake gasket. Sure enough, it turned out to be a 70 and up intake and I already have one of those so unless it is a smoking deal, I just don't need two of them.

dam let me drop what am doing so i can TAKE A PICTURE.

If it's a straight line, yes, early (pre-1970)
A straight edge will do it, even a yardstick or a ruler. There's enough difference you can see it.

They look high. What are the numbers on the heads under the valve cover and between the valve springs?

They are cylinder heads and can go on either side so the casting number is on each head on every engine ever made.
 
As already stated, they are in between the valve springs. If you are unsure what a valve spring is, ask a friend who has more experience in these things than it appears that you have.
