  This is a set of five 50f (5 chiao) surcharges in green.  
  This is a set of eight values starting with a half fen (and not a one fen as shown by error in Kerr). The one fen does not exist other than in forgery form. This bold black overprint reads China, Temporary Use.

Both of the stamps 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.
