Thank you gents for your help. Much appreciated .So really this is like a pattern or copyright number. I note this style of leather and pattern has a butterfly theme, I will place a pic for you. Also a picture but in negative of the kanji.It shows the faded area a little better.


Thank you,

The kanji are 天平十二年八月日 (Tenpyo 12 nen 8 gatsu hi; A day in the 8th month of 740). However; that is not an actual date but a part of the design on the leather, which is called Tenpyo-gawa (天平革 - Tenpyo leather).


Hello Nobody,


Thank you for helping. This is the count system that I use. It is a basic count system. I was trying to find the 5th kanji with 6 stroke that you have listed. 年
