The cover shown right was sent from 金山 Chin Shan (Jinshan) in 呼吗县 Huma County in 黑龙江 Heilungkiang to a recipient in 河北省 HeBei Province. The envelope looks homemade.

The postmark is Hei Ho, 1st June 1946

  Set of 2 stamps. This overprint is not as shown in Kerr, it is always blurred and unreadable. If anyone knows what these character are please let me know.  
  Set of 1 stamp. As above but with a soft purple chop, still unreadable.  

All overprints known for this village 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.
