Have what i think is a gimei boy's sword, but wonder if the hamon is close to that of the fake? signature's school (Tanba no kami Yoshimichi). All opinions appreciated.  Hope the 20-1 compression ratio leaves clear enough images.

the problem is not only the photos but also the condition of your blade. The HAMON may be visible, but I don't see HADA, NIE or NIOI.
YOSHIMICHI is one of the many famous smiths who were faked a lot, so it may be a good idea to compare with authenticated swords like http://www.aoijapan....014/14523-2.jpg.

On the other hand your blade looks like a solid and traditionally made one, so perhaps a 'window polish' might help to identify it.
