    These really are an incredible find ! If you look on the figures wearing blue on there upper shoulder is usually a character in a circle these (as far as I know ) are denoting a crest /affiliation . Only Samurai are allowed to carry swords or have that certain hairstyle ,decapitation was the punishment for most crimes or offenseses, one of the heads has a Samurai hairstyle so his transgression would have been of a different (not common ) reason prob political . You are very lucky to have these please do let us know what you find out . How did you find these ?

    Samurai also would have these crests on there clothes as well but it is harder to see/ find as they could be worked ,incorporated into the design ,my eyes are bad so try a magnifying glass if you can these are called mon and you would be able to search online for the family name associated with it
