Baby Browning Magazine Reassembly?

Hello all: I'm new here and hope I can ask a question about the Baby Browning. I took apart the original magazine (removed the follower and spring) from my 1966 Baby, cleaned it and then realized I wasn't sure which end of the spring goes up against the follower, or if it even matters (I'm aware of the back/front orientation of the spring). Both ends of the spring look pretty much the same with very minor differences (one loop is [I]slightly [I] larger than the other, but that could simply be from manufacturing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks, Mike

The larger loop goes to the bottom of the magazine.

But what do I know?

Large loop down other end should be ramped to point the follower higher in the front.
