I have a number of photos of sticky shed on posts and built up on the tape
itself but the photos are of video tape.  

The bottom two photos on this link are sticky shed on Betacam tapes.  The
bottom right picture is actually sticky shed residue (oligomer) redeposited
on a tape:

The third thru sixth photos on this page are also the effects of sticky

Don't know if these could work for what you need.  If so, feel free to use
them.  If in a publication, simply give credit reference.
