  Part of a set of 2 soft black surcharges. The four top characters read 中國郵政 Chinese Post, left is the surcharge and to the right Temporary Use.

All of the stamps known for this village are shown above.

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.
