M122. Iron swordsmith's tsuba, signed Yoshimichi
M122. Iron. 6.5 x 7 x .55 cm. Signed, Sagami no Kami Yoshimichi.. A previous owner has left a tag on the tsuba saying, “This is a Yamashiro Province swordsmith YO920 (Hawley’s code for the smith). This man worked ca 1751. He is the 2nd generation.” I don’t know if this is a true signature of Yoshimichi but this is a very well worked, dense plate; could be. There is evidence of folding (lamination) visible on the rim. $200.
