Strong black mechanically printed overprint. The top four characters read 中國郵政 Chinese Post, left Temporary Use, right 北東 North East. The above stamps are part of a set of 12.

Inverted overprint on 40f, this variety is recorded by Kerr.

All the 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.
