All stamps of this issue shown here. 2 分 and  4 分 also exits as booklet panes.

The GMD issued this and a similar issue with red overprint (Kerr 144.11-20). Only the black overprinted stamps were continued to use by the CPC after the Liberation of Mulan. In a strickt view this stamp issue does not belongs to stamps of the Liberation Areas of China, but as the stamps were confirmed used by CPC I list them here (late used covers usually bear a cancel with a date around April 1946. Stampless covers with violet chop were reported as well).


Remarks:
– All shown sets exists (at least some stamps of each set) genuine used on domestic covers.

Not shown:
– Kerr 144.11-20: Set is was issued and used by the GMD only.
