  Area not a town    

  This is a black wooden chop reading 遼西地區 West Liaoning Prefecture. This is a Communist overprint and the issue date is thought to be 15th September 1945 (I have seen an example dating 18th September 1945). See also Kerr 198 Sui Chung.

Kerr shows two further values 20f and 30f which, if they exist are not authorised issues, he also felt that the status of this chop was questionable.


These stamps have been identified by using the four booklet guide The Local Overprinted Stamps of Manchuria 1945-7 by Allen D Kerr (published 1978 and now out of print).
