Hanko help?

I just saw this on eBay and the hanko intrigued me. It was on a jinashi 2.1, I believe. Anyone have an idea as to hanko meaning or maker?

Hi Chris,
I asked Mori-san about that hanko after I put in the first bid.  He said it was somewhat illegible, but offered three translations, the first of which as I remember was “Gyo-cho”-- I joked with him that flutes like these usually sell for $1 per spot.  No doubt one of the prettiest pieces of gome stock I’ve seen, but the drilling scratches, urushi excess and obscure hanko gave me pause to be less than all in on the final bid in the middle of the morning.
Would the winner post this as the greatest sounding flute they've ever looked at?

Maybe they will?

Hard to tell how good or how old it is by looking at the pic. Whoever got it, definitely write a review.
