Other Names

  Map of 1945    
  This town is either the next stop on the line or part of Hua Ch'aun itself. I have seen covers postmarked 千振 and this post office is listed in Fisher. See below

  This is a set of 3 values overprinted in oily black ink. The top row reads 郵政 Chinese Post and below this Temporary Use 北東 North East.  
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.
