  This is a complicated 7. 7. commemorative chop in blue, over previously surcharged Chang Chun overprinted stamps. The set consists of eight different overprinted stamps.

Both of the above examples have slightly misplaced Chang Chun overprints.

  This is a set of 2 surcharges, both with hard blue/black overprints. The upper four characters read 中華民國 Chinese Republic.

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.
