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 however I suspect that the full set of genuine values is shown above.

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.
