Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm using the Overpass API to access OSM data for local town and county boundaries (relation objects)

From what I can understand, the Overpass queries for local geometries are based on admin_level — from 1 - 10.

In Nominatim's API, the zoom levels — in particular from 10-18 — seem capable of returning local boundaries that are deeper and more localized than Overpass' admin_levels.

Is there any way to access the Nominatim localized geometries, on zoom levels like 10-18, using Overpass API queries?

This question is marked "community wiki".

Provide OSM links to examples of what Nominatim returns that's not accessible via Overpass. Not all boundaries are political with admin_level tag.
