It's unknown if Kin'emon is using Observation Haki in this episode to avoid Luffy or some other version of sensing attack.
When the full room is shown where the Straw Hats are captured, there is no sign of the pieces of the head.
In this episode, Kin'emon talks about hanjimono (判じ物). These are a special type of puzzle published in the Edo period. These are a page of various images that challenge the reader to piece together the illustrations to form names or locations. Similar to a visual word puzzle.
The C.C. on the transponder snail at the end of this episode stands for Caesar Clown.
