Fred, that is a difficult question and nobody was able yet to give me convincing answers. Several prints with the gift seal went through my hands, the quality in terms of printing, registration and paper was not visibly inferior compared with prints carrying the "proper" seal.

In the book "Ito Shinsui - all the Woodblock Prints", published by Watanabe, several images show the gift seal. If really of less quality (and value?), Watanabe certainly would have chosen other prints for his publication. Probably more research is necessary to find a conclusive understanding of the gift seal.
