The actor indeed is Nakamura Denkuro. Compare another print featuring the same actor by one of Shunsh˘'s pupils, Katsukawa Shunk˘, above.
Without any closer personal scrutiny it will be very difficult to tell anything about the authenticity of the print.
However, the seller also posted a picture of the back of the print and to me this looks as if it would be an original and not a later reprint. The style is also very characteristic for Shunsh˘ and his school. As far as I know (and please correct me if I am wrong), the signature 春章 was only used by Shonsh˘ himself.
It is very dangerous to say anything and please don't take this for granted, but I would say that this is legit. Other experts here should make their comments first though.
