Help Identifying Hot Stamp

Recommended Posts

Dear All

I need your help to identify a hot stamp present on the iron body of a Heianjo tsuba of mine.

The surface of the iron shows hammer marks as on Tempo tsuba and in a couple of places shows sign of the hot stamps that are often shown by tsuba of this school. 
Only in one place the stamp is clear enough to show part of a kanji.

It does not look like one of those usually reported as being on Tempo tsuba (https://www.militaria.co.za/nmb/topic/7973-write-up-about-early-saotome-tsuba/).

Any information helping in identifying the kanji/motif it is appreciated

 

Best Regards
Luca

Yes Barry, I had the same feeling.

That's the reason why I was asking about the identification of the stamp.

Hi Thomas

 

That was my first impression too. But there seems to be a vertical stroke connecting the two horizontal one.

This is what I am seeing:

Hey Luca, 

I see what you mean, I thought it may have been a partial stamp with a boarder.

 

Kind regards,

Thomas
