  This is a full set of 3 soft black overprints as listed by Kerr. The four characters read 中國郵政 Chinese Post. Chan does not list this set.  
         
       
       
         
  Above are two additional 10f with the same chop but unlisted by either Chan or Kerr.  
         
         
     
               1Y on 10f   2Y on 10f         
 

This features a very hard purple surcharge over the Chang Chun set of overprinted 10f stamps. The complete set is shown above. Kerr lists the second stamp as having a 5Y surcharge, but the surcharge looks like 2Y to me.

  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 probably correct in this.

  5Y on 20f   5Y on 30f  
  This is a full set of 4 surcharges in soft black. Chan lists this set as belonging to Bei Hsing Tsun (Kerr's Peh Hing Chen).  
         

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.
