I'm looking for help in translating the signature on an interesting matchlock I will have up for sale soon.
The signature is a little hard to make out as you will see, but I did take photos from different angles and with different lighting to try to get a translator enough to see.
By the way, this matchlock carbine has a feature I find intriguing. The barrel features a fluer-de-lis. The French sent 15 military advisors to Japan to teach the Satsuma samurai Western methods of warfare.
Any help in translating the maker's signature would be appreciated.
