Jose,
ashigaru armor's or okashi gusoku (lent armor's) bearing usually neither a date nor a signature. Shu urushi inscriptions are mostly numbers and sizes. Or sometimes including at best the name of the arsenal.

Great,as i though it could be late edo or meiji,when these armors weren't made for being used anymore,

i thought that could be mei,but that makes more sense

Thanks Uwe,you are always there  :thumbsup:

Hi,
It's date,not signature.

 

Front:
慶應 (Keiō).  Keiō period(1865-1868) is a name of the year at late Edo era.

 

Back:
慶應七寅年(Tiger year,the 7th year of Keiō.)
But,Keiō period exists only 4 years,not existed 7th year of Keiō.
If the tiger year is right, the date on the Do is the 2nd year(1866) of Keiō period.

Great, thanks Morita san! Doesn't expect a date at this type of armor...
Sry Jose, I was proved to be wrong.
