I'm having a tough time IDing this Shunei portrait. But I'll be damned it it doesn't look like Ebizo (Danjiro V). I know he used several actor names so I'm thinking this is on of those...thus no classic triple box mon. The mon (in three parts) looks like it could read something like Ichikawa Ebizo...maybe. I'm tentatively dating it c.1780s. I'd like to be accurate so any help would be great and I know you guys are on top of this sort of thing! And P.S. I checked all the data bases can't find the print anywhere. DG
