  This is a mixture of Mukden Type overprints Dr Luzitano lists them under the numbers FT66A, FT66B, FT66c, FT66D, Ft66E FT66F, FT66G, FT66H and FT66I the above listed by Kerr is a mixture - see Mukden Types.

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.
