Manchurian Local Overprints 1945 - 1947

Japanese Kerr 7.


Other Names
Anzan An Shan Anshan Ānshān  
  鞍山 Est: 1937. Famous for the giant SMRC iron and steel works which later became the Showa Steelworks. Anshan (Map)  
  (Liao-yang) Anzan  
  Map of 1945    

Set of four stamps with a soft black 郵政  北東 Chinese Post, North East chop. The unusual design on the 北 (běi) character makes this distinctive.

  Above is a complete set of twelve FT20 Mukden Type overprints. Used copies are unknown.

All of the overprints known for Anshan are shown above.

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.
