Both stamps are the same.

They are People's Republic of China, East China, Scott #5LQ27.

re: china parcel post? or prc?

Are you sure it’s People’s Republic of China?

It says Republic of China on the stamps.

re: china parcel post? or prc?

The original parcel post stamps without the overprint/surcharge are listed in Republic of China (Scott #Q1). The parcel post stamps with the overprint/surcharge are listed in East China, under the PRC listings in Scott.

What does the red overprint/surcharge say? (If you can read it. I'm curious.)

re: china parcel post? or prc?

Ah, that makes sense!

The red overprint says:m, from top to bottom:

Parcel post stamp

East China Post

5000 yuan

The first character on the second line (read from right to left, somehow I can’t include this Chinese character in my reply) may mean different things to different people. Typically it means something Chinese or more precisely Han-Chinese.
