  Set of 2 surcharges both for Y2.  
  Set of 3 overprints reading North East China Post Office. The dots of black ink to the left of the two lower characters are typical and probably due to some defect in the hand-stamp used.

Fake overprints are known on the 1944 10f Friendship with Japan Issue, these are copies from Kerr's sketch.

  Set of 3 overprints reading North East China Post Office, Temporary Use, this time in blue. Always very soft as above.

All stamps known for this town are shown above.

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.
