  This is a set of 4 Mukden Type overprints FT38 see Mukden Types.  

  1Y on 1f   2Y on 2f  

This is a soft lilac surcharge and a complete set of two stamps is shown above.

Although these stamps are shown as one set in both Chan and Kerr it is likely that they were produced independently, based upon the different font styles used for the 中華民國 Chinese Republic and the Yuan characters.

Shown above are all of the 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.
