In general, if a "Nain" is 6 la or better, is it a true Nain, not Tabas?

Tabas vs nain is best seen in images - do you have photos? Also, generally the distinction is delineated by under/over knot densities. Lastly, there are many main style carpets woven close to and around nain, so even if tabas may actually be another area close-by

I do have another rug that was purchased in the early 1990's as a silk tipped Nain, I have checked, and I now know is 9 la. I'll get around to taking some good photos, and I'll post on the Rug Identification forum. Thanks Rug Pro !
