Heilongjiang Province (黑龍江省) Local Issue, Tonghe (通河)

This map only gives rough impression about area and location.

2nd stamp issue (Kerr 246.21-39):

Provisional Issue: Stamps Overprinted "Chinese Post Change to" and Surcharged
All stamps of this issue shown here.

Issued by:Tonghe Postal Administration (通河郵政管理局)
Overprint"Chinese Post Change to" and Surcharged ("中華郵政 改作" 改值郵票)

There is a bogus issue with a very similar overprint (Kerr 246.47-56). I hightlight with green arrows some main differences (left Kerr 246.35 / right Kerr 246.55):
