Anomeric carbons in any sugars are always that of aldehyde(-CHO) or ketone(-CO-) groups.
Carbon of aldehyde group in sugars is always numbered as #1, carbon at ketone groups is numbered #2 or more depending on place in carbon chain.

Make sure you are looking at it in pyranose form, then the anomeric carbon, #1, becomes way more obvious

 The hemiacetal carbon in glucose  is the anomeric carbon.
