This set of four stamps with soft black characters, the top row reads 中華郵政 Chinese Post below, the surcharge is shown on the left with 暫作 Temporary Use on the right.
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.|
