|This is a hard black overprint that Kerr reports is only known on covers (this copy has traces of a postmark). The overprint reads 中華郵政 Chinese Post, 暫用 Temporary Use. Additional values have been seen in a thick black ink, these are probably fake.|
This is a soft purple overprint reading
中華郵政 Chinese Post.
All of the 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.|
