  This is the only overprint for Peh An Chen. The outer four characters read 中國郵政 Chinese Post in the centre Temporary Use.  It appears in soft purple or black. The purple set has 12 values.  
  The black set has 10 values. The 2f and 4f booklet panes exist with this overprint - see below, these are treated as separate issues by Kerr for some reason - see below.  
  All of the overprints known for this village 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.
