This is a set of nine soft black
overprints. The four characters read
中華郵政 Chinese Post.
Chan recognises a further 9 values, these may not normally be issued
or may simply be forgeries.
Note: Kerr shows the Chinese 葵傢溝 Kuí jiā gōu (his translation Tsai kia kow). Fisher's Gazetteer has identified a Post Office at 加傢溝 Jiā jiā gōu (Chia-chi-kuo), a name shown as an alternative by Kerr - this may be a different town.
All of the stamps known for this town 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.|
