When the camera had the closeup on Hop Sing after Joe found him, Hop Sing's eyes were clearly red from crying. That's something to be able to work himself up like that.

.
I was reading an article about "best souvenirs" and came across this mention of "chops":
The Chinese have used seals colloquially known as chops to sign artwork and documents since the Shang dynasty (about 1600 to 1046 BC) — think of the square red mark in the corner of Chinese paintings. You can purchase chops, made of stone found in China, in many markets. Pick out a piece you like, and the merchant will carve the characters you choose into the bottom. Chops are a few inches tall and are packed in silk gift boxes, sometimes with a container of red paste.

I also found this blog entry from 2013 about a woman in Taiwan - she had to get a chop (stamp) created with her name in order to open a bank account:

Wow! That's really interesting. Fingerprints [ or chops] go back many centuries. That's just what Hop Sing explains in The Mark Of Guilt. :hopsing1 :very happy

Love this episode, good story, very well written script. I also love that Hop Sing has a bigger role than usual. Victor Sen Yung was a fine actor and it's a shame the writers couldn't find more story lines over the years for him. Hoss and Candy have great parts here too and both do a great job. Love the scene where Hop Sing finds Little Joe's 'chops' on his shaving knife and tries to explain to Hoss and Candy how he can prove his innocence.
