  The Kiangsi branch of the Dah Tung Book Co. at Kanhsien was removed to Chungking, where it changed its name to the Chungking Printing Press of the Dah Tung Book Co.. and undertook the printing of Dr . Sun Yat-sen stamps in a design similar to that of the Central Trust Print . But the portrait is in a white eclipse with the national emblem at the top.

  The stamps of $2 and $5 denominations were put on sale in December 1945 and those of the other two denominations in January 1946.
