Manchurian Local Overprints 1945 - 1947

Japanese Kerr 271.


Other Names
  Yung Lo Chen Yongling

Yoong Lok Tsun



  Unable to find on map.      
Kerr places this town south of Nunkiang in Heilungkiang. I can't locate a town by that name with the maps I have although I can find a town shown as Yung Nan Chen in a similar location. A post office with this name is not found in Fisher. The location may be fictional and the overprint concocted by a dealer (not a unusual practice).
  This soft black overprint reads China Post Temporary Use Re-valued.

Kerr states that this stamp is only found on covers. Chan lists it as a private overprint.


  40f (Assumed)    
  This version of the overprint in red is unlisted by Kerr or Chan.  
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.
