    Heard that this updated version (6th edition, Volume 2) was supposed to be available earlier this year, but was delayed until December 2020. Here we are about a week and a half from Dec 1 and the book isn't on Whitman Publishing's website at all. Has a page on Amazon but no upcoming release date (no preorders available) and a page over at Barnes & Noble (with preorder available for $39.95.)

    Does anyone have any insight as to what caused the initial delays, and if it will actually be available on Dec 15 as stated on B&N?

    Thanks

    Try wizard coin in Va. They have great prices, and a good inventory, if anyone can advise you call wizard they are great to deal with.

    Well, checking out their website, they do have a listing for Volume 1 (half cents through Jefferson nickels) - but it's out of stock at the moment (darn, because it's on sale, too, haha...) but not a listing for Volume 2.

    They have a listing for the old version Volume 2 (5th Edition) - which I already have...and it is also out of stock.

    I have a feeling it will be delayed again. I've been waiting for it for several years now. But you throw COVID in and everything goes out the window. I'm will be one of the early buyers.

    The used ones on eBay are insane!

    @jtlee321 - Yeah, those are CRAZY prices - like, who would actually buy that book at that price?

    I hope the newer version is formatted a lot better than the 5th edition (maybe have the variety, pictures, and information ALL TOGETHER on the same page this time?) and I hope all the varieties have pictures...

    There is so many sites on line I no longer buy a CPG. And the errors I have found in them .
    Now yeah i love books... and have quite a few....but they have dropped the ball so many times.

    @Paddy54 - Yes, I do have quite a few bookmarks in my browser, but sometimes it's still nice to unplug from a screen and pore through an actual physical book.

    I do still have a PDF version of the CPG on my iPad, though...so if I was able to buy the updated PDF of the CPG I would.
