This surcharge is shown in Kerr's book 4 as being in violet making it hard to find. The complete set is shown above in the correct colour, light blue. Impressions of this set are always feint as shown above.

 The top four characters read 中國郵政 Chinese Post  left is the surcharge and to the right Temporary Use.

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.
