This is an example of an inverted Jao Ho chop. This is part of a set of 8 stamps. 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.
