How Can I Tell if My Fireplace Damper is Open?

We have an old fireplace that we have never used. I'm trying to figure out how to open / close the damper

I've attatched a short video showing the handle that controls the damper, does anyone know what position is open and which is closed?

Someone also recommended I test it using smoke from a candle, here's a video of that but It wasn't really obvious to me if the smoke was being pulled into the chimney or not
