  These stamps are very hard to read and you seldom find copies that are much better than these, it makes you wonder how successful they were when (if ever) they entered the postal system.

These are all the overprints known to exist 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.
