Above is part of a set of eight soft black overprints. Kerr thought other values may exist and could only find this overprint on covers. Chan lists a 30f missed by Kerr but included above. I also include a 2f and 50f which have been seen on covers.
The four characters read 中華民國 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.|
