Possible Sekino Print!?

I recently acquired a woodblock print of snow covered
shrines (very neutral colors..white, black/grey, pale
green). I received the print with some of my mother's
estate items. I vaguely remember when we got the
print. We were stationed at Okinawa AFB in 1970. (I
was 9 years old at the time.) I almost gave the print
away until I discovered that my mother had
many items that were collectibles. So the last few
days I've gotten on-line and I believe it is an
original. It is signed (in pencil) "Jun Sekino".
There is also a red stamp along with some Japanese
characters that are also written in pencil. I took
the back off the frame and found a small piece of paper
with handwritten numbers. A "94" in black marker. The
rest is another number, but it is very faint. It looks
like "4273J". The "4" may even be a smudge. I can't
tell. Does anybody out there think this could be worth
something? I'm new at this and I could use all the
help I can get. Also, there is another print that
looks like it was printed on fabric. It is a bird
on a branch. The bird is brown and black with it's
beak pointing up in the air. The branch
leaves and background are a variety of green colors.
There is a red stamp as well as a Japanese characters
signature in black ink. Thanks! Karen :)
