Early Ko-Kinko Tsuba
A Ko-Kinko tsuba 6.95 cm x 6.44 cm x 3.5 mm. I believe that this is likely Nambokucho. Red copper with a hammered rim, Amida yasuri, pine needles in copper and silver, and silver dew drops. Excellent patina. It appears that three pine needles are missing on the reverse, as shallow channels are present. Where that not the case, I would consider submitting this for juyo tosogu.
