Expertisation: Experts & Consultants certificate (2015).

Xichang was liberated on 27 March 1950. The Xichang Military Control Commission of the People's Liberation Army took over the post office there on 5 April and quickly resumed postal communications on 6 April. Due to the chaotic and unsettled conditions, the Southwest China Definitive stamps could not be transported within good time to Xichang. Therefore, as an interim measure, the local military representative agreed to carve two wooden handstamp devices for surcharging the surviving supply of the Nationalist stamps for emergency use. Formal approval for this measure was confirmed by the Sikang Post Office in an official letter (No. 48).
