Another Mei question

Hello, again,

Am I correct in interpreting the kanji in the attached file as 'Masayoshi'?. The kanji is on the tang of another of my recently acquired wakizashi.


Mei on Recently Acquired Wakizashi

Hello everyone,
I am a collector of WWI and WII firearms and edge weapons, and new member of this club. I have about 8 military Japanese swords that were produced and/or used during these war periods. Just recently, I purchased a few possibly antique Wakizashi swords. One of these, has the characters that appear in the attached photo. I recognized the kanji for 'Tada', so, I search through this website's signature database, but, I was not able to find a match. I was wondering if any of you is able to interpret or recognize the inscribed characters and signature.

Would like to know makers name from signature, possible age of Wakizashi, and if the marks on top of tang are just for fittings

Hello, would like to get an approximate age and signature identification of this Wakizashi. Also, on top of the tang are some marks, I am assuming they are fittings numbers?. Thank you.
