Thanks to you all for the research.
Holy smoke! I buy a Hiroshige Shini-e and I get a forged Kunisada actor print!! 'The floating world' is alive and kicking!
In any case I'm not the forger of this print, but I can state that Kunisada's signature and the censor seal were removed by some liquid or acid; I made another scan of the reverse side of the print to show this practice in detail.
By the way, I can state also that the Hiroshige signature was truly printed on the print.
Can't we all get a job with the FBI or Interpol.
