Is it possible to tell which spiral sliced ham has a smaller bone in it while it's still in the package?

I bought 2 Carando spiral sliced hams recently. One was 9.5 pounds and the other was 10.5 pounds. I cut all the meat off each (to vacuum seal and freeze for later meals) and found the smaller ham yielded 1 pound more meat than the larger one because of the bone! The small ham had a ball and socket bone in it and the larger one had a big cylinder shape bone in it. Is it possible to tell which has the smaller bone while it's still in the package?
