Hi,

If with "original" you mean which priority was claimed first you need to identify a priority look for the earliest date among all priority documents:

http://ops.epo.org/rest-services/family ... US.7014867

In your case its quite easy to spot which were first because there was a provisional US application filed in 2001 and on the same day EP priority was claimed to.

You can always make a search to see original US document in PDF if you are unsure about earliest priority info:http://worldwide.espacenet.com/publicat ... cale=en_EP
