This is a soft black surcharge and above is a complete set of 2 stamps. The top two characters 中華 China, then value (?) with the surcharge below.

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.
