Hello.  I would be very appreciative if someone could read the kanji written below the date on this signature.  
 

Thank you in advance!

Right below the date is 夏 (natsu), meaning summer, as Piers mentioned in another thread.

The writing beneath that is 

玉置直候蔵 

Tamaki Naoyoshi zō (from the collection/arsenal of Tamaki Naoyoshi). 

 

Maybe it would be better to group all of these threads together.

Thank you, Steve.

 

Right.  The thread had gone stagnate for 24 hours.  So this gave the topic new life.  
 

Your translation is very helpful, Steve.  Thank you.  
 

Can I ask—do you fee as well, that the signature says that it was from an order of 5 guns?

 

And second, do you know if this gun was in fact made by the son of the great Ikkan-sai Kunitomo smith?  
 

Looking forward to hearing your comments, Steve.  
 

Thank you.

Matt,
Please clear it with all the guys who assist, if you plan on using the info commercially.
Also, one thread per topic, don't cross post. Eventually answers will come. Don't want multiple threads on the same item. Thanks.

Yes, as I mentioned in the other thread, it looks like the writing refers to this being one of five (as Piers also mentioned). Regarding the smith, I confirm Piers' reading of Gōshū Kunitomo Tōbei Mitsutoshi, but I'm afraid I can't help identify who that is, or if the signature is authentic.
