Ha! Then that is 01-07-003. That is the same handshape that Hector 
Devias requested before. So Colombian and Brazilian Sign Languages do 
have a similar sign...

I thought you meant a closed fist where the thumb, deep underneath, 
pushes the ring finger up just a little...I plan to add that one 
later...I call that the Ring-Thumb-Hook...

But meanwhile, there is no pushing in 01-07-003....but the thumb is 
under the Ring Finger as you have diagramed in the attached...good 
drawing Charles!
