the back looks like that of a woodprint

Kunisada's kabuki prints are probably not sophisticated enough to be embossed, but such a feature would definitely have made it a woodprint.

frayed edges mean that it is likely washi paper (used for woodprints).

If some of the inscriptions are missing, it just means that it is a later recarving of the print (if this is a woodprint), but why bother recarving a Kunisada print?
