  Set of five surcharge stamps with an oily black typeset hand-stamp, the two sets are very similar but I have noticed that the oily black ink bleeds through the paper making it possible to tell the sets apart.

Note - The 2000 and 2010 copies of Chan show the wrong image.

All of 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.
