True ribs
Anterior surface of sternum and costa cartilages. (True ribs are first seven.)
Gray's subject #28 123

The first seven ribs are connected behind with the vertebral column, and in front, through the intervention of the costal cartilages, with the sternum; they are called true ribs or vertebro-sternal ribs.

False ribs are interconnected membranous structures that are connected with the sternum process.
