Above is part of a set of eight soft black overprints. Kerr thought other values may exist and could only find this overprint on covers. Chan lists a 30f missed by Kerr but included above. I also include a 2f and 50f which have been seen on covers.

The four characters read 中華民國 Chinese Republic.

These are the only stamps known for this village.

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.
