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.|
