  Set of 10 Mukden Type overprints FT41 see Mukden Types. What you see above is all you are likely to come across. Kerr may have confused the stamps marked as doubtful with other similar overprints.

Kerr does not list the 10f Orange but this is reported in The Post-war Provisional Issues of North East China, MLO Volume 1. written by Dr George T. Luzitano, a specialist work on the Mukden type overprints.

These are all the overprints known to exist for this village.

 
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.
