Look very closely and you may still see them. If there really aren't any, it may be simpler to buy a hinge slot marking tool and then carefully slip a blade into the trailing edge. Or ask the LHS (if that's where it came from) to see if they will cut them for you. I literally flew the trim off a MUS and my LHS ironed it back on for me.

If you don't have access to a hinge marking/cutting tool, if you are very careful, hinge slots can be made with a #11 Exacto blade.
