I'll have a look tomorrow when I have more time. It is dated:

天保十八年
Tenpo 18th Year
1841

The first year of Tenpo was 1831.


And two mentions of the family name:
岩井
Iwai

I can't read the given names yet ... but I'll look in to the task tomorrow.

天保十八年
Google found Tenpo only had 15 years, which is 1844.

That character does look like 八. That's very odd. It won't be 六 because Tenpo didn't go that far. Maybe it's 三?

Hmmmm .... for some reason I cannot access the links now. My computer says

.....

Unless the image is uploaded on the thread I'll have to wait to get home tonight to take another look.


Oldhonda: you're right. Tenpo 15 will be the last year.
