1st stamp issue (Kerr 89.11-12 / red overprint, 89.13-22 / dark violet overprint):

Provisional Issue: Stamps Overprinted "Chinese Postal Service Temporarily Used for"
Not all stamps of this issue shown here.

Overprint"Chinese Postal Service Temporarily Used for" ("中華郵政 暫用")

Stamps of this issue don’t exists ununsed. The two listed denomination 2 分 and 4 分 with red overprint (Kerr 89.9-10) have a slightly different overprint. We can call them under best case bogus, I will not list them. Besides these two stamps never had a practically use for postage stamps in April 1946 anyway.
