What do helenium seeds look like?

Jamaica Plain, MA(Zone 6a)

Can't find a pic anywhere. Are they the hundreds of little "sticks" attached to the little hard ball at the center?
Thanks for any info.

West Pottsgrove, PA(Zone 6b)

I've planted them but they had chaff etc., so I really don't remember, but Prairie Moon has pics:

Thanks for the link, claypa! However, those didn't look quite like anything I could find on the dried flower head of my "mardi gras", so I don't quite trust that I have the answer yet. I might just have to see if I can sprout them.

Thank you again, Jonna! It does look like those little sticks that attach temselves to the hard round center are the seeds.
