  This is a set of 5 easily recognisable stamps featuring the Nationalist star inside a box formed by the four characters 中華民國  Chinese Republic, in most cases the characters obliterate the stamp's face value, it is not known if this is deliberate.

Above 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.
