Hey everyone,

 

I have this set of papers that belongs to a Mino-school tanto. I am requesting a translation if it wouldn't be too much trouble.

 

Thank you all very much!

My mistake, I didn't even remember what school it belonged to! I'll post some pictures of the tanto itself below:

The tanto was certified as a kicho token. The paper was issued on April 30th, 1972.

Thank you Moriyama-san!

 

Do you think this paper still holds weight and is proper? Or would this need to be repapered?

Generally, those old NBTHK papers are not thought to be important.

However, the tanto is mumei, and it  apparently looks to be a genuine nihonto.

So, if I were you, I do not want a new paper issued.

 

If you are talking about its commodity value, I do not know the new paper's additional value to the tanto.

Chris Jumyō smith lineage was Mino tradition, so you are correct that it is indeed a Mino tanto.

i doubt a new paper would increase the value more than it costs you. Hozon probably $1000 with postage agent fees etc and you can't even send it if you wanted to (as  far as i know Japan is not accepting mail from the U.S.
