This is a Mukden Type overprint, it is listed by Chen or Kerr. In The Post-war Provisional Issues of North East China, MLO Volume 1. written by Dr George T. Luzitano it is shown as FT42 and described as very scarce.

All Mukden Types overprints are very similar and have the same four characters 中華 China, Temporary Use and almost all of these overprints are in black. This version is unusual because of it small size.

There is one further set of 2 stamps known for this town. 

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.
