The dimensions you state are a little larger than a standard postcard size, but close enough for us to call it that. I'm not aware of any "series" of Hasui prints which were published in postcard size, so I think that the dealer that led you down that path may be mistaken.
It is a unique situation (in my experience) to hear about a blockset for a Hasui print to fall into private hands. There is no way to calculate the value of that because it is unprecedented. If they were mine, I would make arrangements with an experienced Japanese woodblock printer to produce an edition of prints. I would also be tempted to have them produce a process book showing each individual impression next to the cumulative result of all previous impressions.
