Shin with line almost touching Nun

A sofer came to the Beis Horah by R' Shammai this week with an example of a shailo he had seen recently.

L'maseh it's not touching (the line coming out from the shin that is next to the Nun)

R' Shammai was machshir and told the sofer it's similar to one when writes a Chof and Vav and they came out very close together however not touching. This I've seen by him a number of times (the shailo of a chof and vav) and as long as it's not touching was also machshir.
