MFA impressions: 21.9946, RES.54.124
The impression illustrated in Sakai is dated 1843-47 because it has the censor’s seal “Tanaka” above the signature, as does RES.54.124. 21.9946, however, does not have the seal and so has been assigned the date of 1840-42 that Sakai gives for other prints in the series.
No censor's seal
