Appraisal Quiz #767

Previous answer is
  Signature : (Gold inlay) Nagamori
Honna (Kao)(Koichi)

Special Features: Nagamori is believed to belong to the lineage of Nagashichō Nagayoshi, dating back to the 15th
year of Shōhei era (Enbun 5), a time-honored tradition. Therefore, it is presumed that Nagamori,
much like Nagayoshi, thrived during the same era and often utilized the era names from the
latter part of the Southern Dynasty. While Nagamori's style resembles Nagayoshi's, it presents
unique features, such as irregularities in the midare-ba, shallow notare, and straight hamon,
demonstrating a relatively broad spectrum of artistic expression.
