What is the best way to differentiate between DLR and Questa printings for SG EN1 and EN2 issues? The Questa printings come from booklets at least for the EN1 per my 2018 Concise. I noticed the perfs on a side may have white from tearing but not sure if these follow the cut/torn identification method.

The Questa booklet stamps come from Prestige booklets. So, they will have torn perforations on all sides like sheet stamps. If no margins are attached that show whether they are from a sheet or a booklet, you need to check the direction of printing. The Questa 2003 stamps were printed sideways right and De La Rue upright.

There is a good chance the white tips are margins from adjoining stamps. That would indicate they come from Prestige booklets.

Thanks. I am pretty sure they came from the booklet.
