My opinion is that this is a very faithful reproduction of a well-known kabuki print. It seems there are enough small differences versus the keyblock and color blocks of the original to say that it is not printed from the original woodblocks.
As to why the green band on the sleeve would have been omitted, not sure. Could be an original from which it was copied exists in such a state, or could be intentional by the copyist, or could be just an oversight in an otherwise very accurate represenation
