  Crimson chop with four large characters reading 中華民國 Chinese Republic.  
  Listed by Kerr, twice for some reason and Chan seems to have copied this (and assigned two different values). - As above but with a pale red chop, probably not a genuine variety just a product of watered down ink.  




  This is the same design as the above in purple reading 中華民國 Chinese Republic. There may be some variation in this colour as Chan describes it as violet black.  

This is a soft grey blue chop with four large characters 中華民國 Chinese Republic. Listed as part of the above set by Kerr. Chan describes this colour as light violet black

The above 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.
