I am inclined to think that both of the later prints are from recut blocks, albeit very good copies. I have (hopefully) pasted a few examples to show my reasoning. Although I took the examples from the MFA and LOC prints you have mentioned you might find the following link helpful:
Also I believe that one of the examples from Artlino listed on the ukiyo-e.org website is the same (blocks) as the LOC example judging from the visible wood grain.
This is always a learning process for me so take it with a grain of salt.
