2nd stamp issue (Kerr 203.4-5):
Provisional Issue: Stamps Overprinted "Temporarily Used for" and Surcharged
All stamps of this issue shown here.

Issued by:Hegang Postal Administration (鶴崗郵政管理局)
Overprint"Temporarily Used for" and Surcharged ("改作" 改值郵票) on overprinted stamps from Changchun [長春]
Overprint method:Hand-overprinted with wooden chop
Currency:Northeast Currency (東北幣)
There are two settings of the overprint existing (narrow or wide).

Why the overprint from Changchun (長春) [Kerr 13.14-15] was used for the overprints in Hegang (鶴崗) I can’t say, but the stamps of Changchun (長春) were distributed widely to many post offices (even to Hegang (鶴崗) which around 700 km far away from Changchun (長春)).

Cover (domestic rate of 1 元). Cancel: 11 June 1946, Hegang (鶴崗), Sanjiang (三江):
