  Map of 1945   Yi toong  

  Complete set of seven characters in hard black. The four characters read 中華民國 Chinese Republic.  
10f 40f 40f

Additional values - Kerr mentions a cover in his book with five more values 10f, 40f, 40f and 50f but states that these are not normally issued. Chan shows these extra values as part of the set.

This is the only overprint 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.
