This is complete set of stamps with a hard black surcharge featuring a line to cross out "Manchukuo" and four characters 中華民國 reading Chinese Republic.

 These are the only stamps known 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.
