What V&H pipes do I have and are there baffles?

Can anyone tell what type of V&H pipes I have on my 05 VN800A? Should there be a number stamped somewhere? And how do I tell if the previous owner removed the baffles? The bike sounds and runs great but it's a wee bit too loud for me. I know, I know...if it's too loud, yer too old! I am getting older and I've grown accustomed to being able hearing the voices in my head loud and clear! I've tried shining a flashlight in the pipes but I can't tell if there are any baffles installed. There isn't anything at the ends of the pipes like I see on other pipes. I would like to install baffles or add quieter ones to save what hearing is left.

about 3 inches from the ends of pipes on the left side there should be a hole and if there is a screw there (screw secures the baffle) then the pipes probably have baffles
