Really unusual stamp on MIJ Tele Neck

Hi everyone,

I am looking at purchasing a vintage MIJ Tele. It's listed as a Fender TN-70 Thinline Telecaster Reissue MIJ 1985/86. I know it is notoriously hard to nail down dates on these tele's but I'm doing my best to do my research. I would love to have an 85 as it would be a birth year tele.

Now for the question...Has anyone ever come across this Japanese Character stamp on the neck of a MIJ Tele? If so, is it consistent with that era of telecaster? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
