This is a set of 4 stamps with a soft black chop readingTemporary Use 北東 North East.


Note:  The Post-war Provisional Issues of North East China, MLO Volume 1. written by Dr George T. Luzitano mentions a possible additional pair of 10f "Friendship issue" stamps with a Mukden Type overprint. To this he assigns the number FT63a. This appears to be a tentative sighting with only one stamp ever being reported.

All of the stamps listed by Kerr and Chan for this town are shown above.

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.
