This is a complete set of 2 stamps with
a 50f surcharge in bluish purple. The top four characters read
中華民國 Chinese Republic,
below this is the surcharge followed by 暫作Temporary.
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.|
