Confirmation and informations request on Shigetaka Sword

Dear Sirs,

I hope you are well.

In waiting for the Hisakuni wakizashi, I ask you another request about a Shigetaka sword. A customer brought me this sword to sell it at the shop. The mei seems to be "豊後守重高", "Bungo No Kami Shigetaka", is it ok?

Now, I don't find information about this swordsmith. All Shigetaka was from Echizen and only one was from Bungo province, Taira Shigetaka (Takada School, Tensho period). I really don't think that's him because the nakago is not very rusted....
