  This is a complete set of 6 stamps with a soft black 中華民國 Chinese Republic overprint.  

  This is a set of nine values with a soft overprint reading 北東郵政 North East China Post.

Kerr lists one more set (4 stamps) can be found for this village, these have a black Mukden type overprint.

Chan lists that above as two sets with the 6f and 20f described as violet (illustrated), plus a further set including the 2f, 4f, 20, and 1Y in red.

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.
