[Seki] Sakō Kaneshige
Thank you Guy, much appreciated!!
Sorry, that is just like a beautiful calligraphy and I can't even make out the characters. You'll need a native-speaker's expertise here.
PM Nick Komiya. Possibly he can help. For your future information, it is far easier for non Japanese to read the kanji if you do not post it sideways or upside down. Guy is an exception but it is difficult for me.

I don't post at WAF anymore all my posts are here instead.
It is not really important to be able to read the words on the silver plate as it is not military and says nothing that would make a real difference to you. It just shows the name of the piece and the artisan's name. The artist looks like a Yoshinori and the piece is named "single leaf XX". With some effort I should be able to decipher it all, but we already have the context and the effort is not worth it.
