If you scroll down on that page there is an example with the same extended drag as yours. Generally these are quite rare and desired by collectors.

Hockeydad nailed it, and what Vajo said is correct- all of these have that same number. Yours is a nice example.

Do you already have the smith name and date translated? If so, I’d like to know the smith name to go with that kokuin stamp.
