Sharaku print

I have an old woodblock print which I am trying to determine if it could be original...or did artists reproduce his work 100 years ago. I have heard the government banned the use of mica after Sharaku. I am not certain mine is mica since I have not had it tested, but it does have a metallic look. Did any of the original woodblocks he used survive the first production? Could they have been used to make copies? I appreciate any information. Thanks. Julia
