Publisher: Daikan Condition: Fine impression, color and condition. The gray area behind the actors head is a thick layer of oxidized gofun. From a very rare early series of 7 actors as tattooed firemen. This is the only print in the series with the actor unidentified. The massive tattoos are a source of pride showing how much pain the fireman can take.
