This is a full set of seven surcharged stamps with
a soft black overprint.
Chan lists, as an additional set, the 50f on 10f pair in black/violet, this may have been regarded by Kerr as simply be a colour variation.
All of the above stamps come from an old collection (pre-dating Kerr) in which the town is labelled Hwa Tien. I therefore believe that Chan is correct to include a violet hand-stamp for this town.
These are the only 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.|
