Why the overprint from Changchun (長春) [Kerr 13.14-15] was used for the overprints in Jiamusi (佳木斯) I can’t say, but the stamps of Changchun (長春) were distributed widely to many post offices (even to Jiamusi (佳木斯) which around 600 km far away from Changchun (長春)!).

2nd stamp issue (Kerr 91.9-13) [vermilion overprint] and (Kerr 91.14-31) [black overprint]

Not all stamps of this issue shown here.
Issued:June 1946
Issued by:Jiamusi Postal Administration (佳木斯郵政管理局)

The vermilion overprints 1 元 / 2 分, 2 元 / 20 分 and 2 元 / 30 分 are very rare. The booklet pane 1 元 / 2 分 does not exists with a vermilion overprint, it was mixed up with the black overprint. It should be “Kerr 91.14a”. The vermilion overprint 1 元 / 4 分 and 2 元 / 7 分 is listed in many catalogs for Liberated Area (like “The Postage Stamp Catalogue of China’s Liberated Areas”, 1998, with number J.DB-29), but why they list only two stamps of the vermilion set I can’t say.
