So, as I suspected 01-05-018 is the correct shape, but the thumb is missing.  This symbol is so ubiquitous in the SF world that we need this shape with the thumb included in the IMWA.  There are a lot of "weird" handshapes, but this particular one is now universal for "live long and prosper".

Although searching for symbols in SymbolBank and SignBank Portal 7 is
the most accurate way to find a symbol, because it gives you the name
and number of each symbol, a very fast and visual way to see the IMWA
symbols is to go to SignMaker. It opens with a listing of all 50 groups
of the IMWA....Then click on a Group symbol to see the BaseSymbols in
each group...If you click on the 5 handshape....see next message...
