Notes: A scarce first state - Pre-war Saaichi strike, with Doi Sadaichi publisher's seal on reverse (see attached image). Major differences exist throughout this first state: starting with the larger setting sun, detailing in the goshawk, softer overall tones, printers seal on the reverse and the additional square seal in the lower left.
RARE; pre-war example.
