M-82. Full moon at Egota
The upper print has the Shōtei seal "Q", is rendered in greater detail than the lower print, and has a
relatively clear sky around the moon.
The lower print has the Shōtei seal "W", is rendered more loosely than the upper print, and has a
couple of dark cloud streaks both above and below the moon
This title "Full moon at Egota" is not included in Watanabe's 1936 catalog.
Therefore this set could be a pre/post earthquake set, or perhaps 2 pre-quake variants.
Using the rarity strategy,
to try to understand them better, let's keep track of sightings.
