  The soft vermillion surcharge reads 郵政 Chinese Post left 暫 Temporary Use with the surcharge on the right. This is a very scarce overprint, Chan does not show it at all and Kerr shows an inaccurate picture which he fails to identify as a surcharge. I have seen scans of the three unlisted values which I believe to be genuine.

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.
