    Both of them look good.....

    Nice long body on the left one. Slightly better bone structure on the right one??
    I would pick the maruten......because of the beni and impact of the front half (the head & shoulder) sumi.

    Nice ones. I'd pick the left one. Reminds me of some Nogami-bred I've seen.

    Me too.....Very interesting to see them again in near future. Yes, both of them can be called Kindai Showa.

    Hello Michael.
    The breeder is Dainichi and she is swimming in a mud pond over there.

    According to my expert friends, she is a rare Showa because that body and that beni (pink beni) usually can not mix..........
