This is a set of 3 soft black surcharges with 10 characters. The top four characters read Chinese Republic, the four in the centre mean Temporary use, North East, and the two at the bottom represent the surcharge.

This is the only set of overprinted stamps known 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.
