This is a complete set of three overprints reading Republic of China, Temporary Use, Northeast.

Fakes have been seen based upon Kerr's sketches, look for the hook of the top of the "中", genuine copies do not have this.

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.
