Help required in identifying NISMO short shifter

Background;
I have a R33 GTR VSPEC and throughout its ownership have been buying bits and bobs for it. I bought a Nismo short shifter (gear level) and went to change it. I took the existing one out and compared both and they were identical. So I put the same one back. I put the one I bought (secondhand) back in it's box and it has just sat there. I have started offloading all the things I have bought and came across this and wanted help to identify if it was a Nismo short shifter, or whether the person I bought it from sold me a standard one. I know that the short shifter obviously is shorter, but I have no reference point. I have uploaded a picture of the unit alongside a measuring tape. Can anybody confirm if it is a short shifter for me so that I can sell it as a short shifter.

Many thanks
Manesh

Nismo 10% short shift is identical to stock but the volume between the outer stick and inner shaft is filled with a harder compound rubber.

So are you saying that there is no way through eyeballing that it can be determined?

Yep!

Easier to tell if you have a stock one to compare with. Just grab the lower part and try and wiggle the outer part. Nismo one moves less with the harder rubber filling.
