A vertical soft black overprint - set of 4. The four characters read 中華民國 Chinese Republic it is unusual to see these arranged vertically.

 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.
