    Default 明珍宗久 - Myōchin Munehisa

    Sengoku Jidai: Warring States Period.

    明珍宗久

    Myōchin Munehisa. [is yours authentic???]

    Here's another Myouchin Munehisa; note the difference in signature:


    Text accompanying the image above:
    Among them, I had a helmet with the inscription Munehisa, it was quite wonderful.
    On a line with rounded overall, in the quaint different again from the Kanto muscular helmet, It is thought to be due to the hand of excellent Workers.

    [...]

    There are many helmets with the inscription of Munehisa. It seems many workers have "ridden his name" [mei wo notta] and have have identified himself as Munehisa, but the other handwriting of the inscription was something you do not see too much. [ghp note: I think he's saying this particular helmet's mei is authentic, incomparable to the many "other" Munehisas.]

    [...]
    Phew .... that took a while!

    [EDIT: Your signature looks like it was inscribed in moist clay, not chisel-engraved in metal -- is that due to the quality of the photograph? .... ]

    Thanks for the translation. I have no way of knowing if the signature is real. Knowing my luck, probably not but I paid very little for the kabuto so I don't think I could get hurt. I thought the signature appeared odd also.
