Sorting through a number of stamps I came across the article in Unitrade regarding identifying "look alike" die cut varieties.
While there were illustrations they were not very clear in relation to the "nibs" described. Which is the means to differentiate between the various coils, booklets, singles.
I think (dangerous I know) that they are the little tufts that show up in the top and bottom rows, where the stamps were attached to the adjacent stamps.
Could someone confirm that the image below is of the nib.

Merci beaucoup Jacques, much obliged for the prompt response. Thought it was that which I was looking at , but the illustrations were not very clear in the catalogue.
Ah well, combined with the various perf variations lots of sorting to do.
