Manchurian Local Overprints 1945 - 1947
|Map of 1945
This is a complete set of four stamps with the soft black 中華郵政暫用 Chinese Post Temporary Use overprint. Kerr mentions that two hand stamps were used with a slight difference noticeable in the 中Chung, It would seem that the 13f stamp is the "odd one out" above.
Shown above are all the 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.
