Shoji Nishio's Judo & Karate Rankings

Hi folks,

I've noticed a discrepancy of sorts in the late Shoji Nishio's judo and karate rankings that I was hoping could get cleared up here...

Although I've seen many sources having his karate ranking at 5th dan and judo ranking at 6th dan (eg this Aikido Journal article), Wikipedia (both its English version as well as its Japanese version) list him as being 4th dan in each.

Since I certainly understand that Wikipedia shouldn't be used as the authoritative source for everything, I just wanted to see if anyone has any further information they could shed on this?
