I've found two other copies of the print on the net:
They all appear to show the same woodgrain pattern above the actor's head (see above), indicating that they were printed with the same woodblocks, while these were rather new.
Theoretically all these prints could be later reproductions, but I very much doubt it. Producing woodblock reproductions of Yoshitora's actor prints would hardly have been a good business venture at any time after his death.
