Hello and Greetings: I was sent these pictures of a signed flag. There appear to be several stamps (inkan?) on the flag. Any help with translation would be appreciated. I apologize if the pictures are not of the best quality. Thank you.

Refer to the following Majestic-san's post.


Ōi Shigemoto became the army general in November 1919, was created baron in April 1921, and retired from the army in April 1933, so it might be written sometime between April 1921 and April 1933.

Thank you Toritoribe. Do you believe that it is authentically signed by General Shigemoto?

The following pictures are General Ōi's calligraphy I found in an auction site. The writing style of 成 is unique, and it resembles the one on your flag. You can also see the same stamps on the upper left on your flag.
