  3. Hello, I recently aqiured here on NMB (from a very nice member) a Noshu ju Kanehisa (dated March 1943) gendaito with star stamp (even somebody tried to hide them) and a Nagoya stamp. Additionaly it has a stamp (slightly above the Nagoya stamp), but here I am completely lost what is is... Any advise would be great. Many thanks in advance Klaus
