Can you tell if a clover antenna is LHCP or RHCP by picture?

I'm not sure if this is possible or not?thinking about buying one off eBay but wanna b sure it will work for me. Just hoping someone can tell me if it's possible and if so, how to tell. I'm guessing by the direction of the "leaves" but not sure how to look at them in the right orientation if that makes sense

Yes. If you hold the antenna with the "leaves" up and the wire down, you look at the leaf that's coming towards you. If the top of it leans left, it's LHCP. If the top leans right, it's RHCP.
I think. This is what some quick googling indicated.

I read somewhere that if you hold it pointed away from you, like a drill bit, the connection facing you,
If it looks like the bit needs to turn to the right to drill a hole then it's a RHCP, and well, you know, if it turns to the left then...
