  This is a set of 8 stamps with an unusual 6 character overprint in soft black reading 民國政 府 The Government of the Republic of China  


This is an example of an inverted Jao Ho chop. There is no mention of inverted stamps for Jao Ho (Yiao Ho) in Chan or Kerr this block is a modern forgery.

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.
