Remarks:
– All shown sets exists (at least some stamps of each set) genuine used on domestic covers.
– Denominations below 20 分 wouldn’t have a practically use in April 1946 so the background why they were still issued and under which circumstances the unlisted stamps were used need to be investigated.

Not shown:
– Kerr 174.6-9: Set is unknown to be genuine used, possible not issued / bogus
– Kerr 174.10-14: Missing good scans here. Known to be used on covers around May 1946 (2nd stamp issue of Sandaozhen), this stamp set compromise at least five stamps (and two booklets).
