  This is a set of 11 soft black overprints. The four characters read 中華民國 Chinese Republic.

Note; Sketches by Chan and Kerr are not a good likeness of the above.

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.
