    The first overprint in black was done in No.6 Sung typeset characters reading 〝限新省貼用〞(restricted for use in Sinkiang) arranged in a horizontal line at the upper part of the stamps. The second overprint was done in a similar manner, but with especially made characters in a zinc plate. The variations of the style of characters in the two overprints are described in the following:

1st Overprint (P-50)
 (1) The strokes in 5 overprinted characters are different in thickness and generally    have sharp corners.

(2) In the character 〝新〞the 11th stroke (slanting stoke) is comparatively long, passing over the 9th stroke (a dot).

(3) In the character 〝貼〞the 6th and 7th strokes are slighly connected with the last stroke of the part〝目〞inclining to the right side.
(4)The 1st stroke in the character 〝用〞is comparatively long.

2nd Overprint (P-51)
(1) The strokes in 5 characters are of uniform thickness without sharp corners.

(2) In the character〝新〞the 11th stroke (slanting stroke) is rather short and does not pass over the 9th stroke (a dot).

(3) In the character〝貼〞the 6th and 7th strokes are connected with the upper portion 〝目〞 in the middle.

(4)The 1st stroke in the character 〝用〞 is short and straight.

  In the first overprint the characters all showed some difference. In fact the types used for overprinting the 200 stamps in each sheet were more of less different from one other.

  10¢, 20¢, 30¢, $1 red and $1 green denominations were printed on both native papers and woodfree printing papers, while 25¢, 40¢ and 50¢ denominations were only on native papers and $1.5, $2, $3, $5 and all denominations of the 2nd print were only on woodfree printing papers.
