A soft red, four character overprint 中華民國 Chinese Republic, this time with a horizontal surcharge in soft black. Set of two stamps shown above.
(Chan lists a further overprint that is not listed by Kerr, this may not be genuine).
These are all of the 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.|
