Chan lists this set as belonging to Bei Hsing Tsun (Kerr's Peh Hing Chen).

 
         
     
         
  This is a full set of 4 stamps.

Chan lists this set as belonging to Bei Hsing Tsun (Kerr's Peh Hing Chen). My research shows that Chan is correct in this.

 
         
         
                         
         
  This is a set of five stamps with hard blue overprints  
         
   
         
  This red overprint on the 39f stamp is not listed in Chan or Kerr and is almost certainly bogus as it would have had no obvious postal use at this time, singly or in multiples..  
  .

Examples of all 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.
