This is a set of seven stamps with an easily recognisable purple 9.2 Victory Commemoration chop.

Kerr and Chan both list two 20f stamps (instead of one 20f (1936) and both 30f stamps) however I suspect that the full set of genuine values is shown above. Kerr discovered the error and noted it in the corrections page of Book 1, Chan may have missed this.

This is the only set stamps known for this village.

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.
