This is a soft four character overprint, very distinctive reading Lin, the short for Lin Kiang, Special, Temporary Use. This is a complete set.

These are all 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.
