  A vermillion Temporary Use 北東 North East overprint. Set of 2 values.

  Kerr lists a full set as seven stamps, Chan has an additional 5f which if authentic would make the set eight stamps. All have a black 中華民國 Chinese Republic overprint.

All of the sets of stamps known for this town 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.
