The cast iron is the exhaust and the alloy is the inlet.
So four cylinders two valves for each.
So from the front
Exhaust Cylinder 1
Inlet Cylinder 1
Inlet Cylinder 2
Exhaust Cylinder 2
Exhaust Cylinder 3
Inlet Cylinder 4
Exhaust Cylinder 4.

Scroll down a bit cylinder head on its side on the left.

Unfortunately I had some on an engine that went complete.

The collet is wedged in the cap when the valve spring pressure is there.
I would have thought there is more chance of a spring falling off than there is of a collet without a spring coming loose.
Though there are valves with three grooves and then the collet has three as well.
I must admit I am not sure of the history, which engines got which valves etc.
My 1275 is using the collets like your new one i.e. single internal groove no external one.
I would post up in the wanted section as someone may have a box of spares from old heads.
