Set of four stamps with an easily recognisable vertical, soft black 中華民國 Chinese Republic chop. Not listed by Chan.

This is the only set stamps known for this village (if it exists).

These stamps have been identified by using Volume II of the Stamp Catalogue of China by Shui-Hon Chan and the four booklet guide The Local Overprinted Stamps of Manchuria 1945-7 by Allen D Kerr (published 1978 and now out of print). Both works are essential for anyone delving seriously into this subject.
