hello, you might want to save your money and buy an early version, the later reprints are nice if you just want something to look at.i don't feel like they are good investments though. But you can buy an original or early printing of Hasui for about 1000K and an orignal Koitsu for about $500 if you shop around.
Tom Crossland has a good site with a good selection of prints of these artists.He is quite knowledgeable on the seals and will give you an accurate description.
I think you might have a better chance of getting an honest opinion over the net than you do in a shop of a vendor in Japan you won't know.
