Odd errors in the new 2022 Red Book?

I've been looking over the 2022 Red Book today and seeing 2 or 3 odd things:

Two Cent pieces: prices got shifted down in the dates between 1870 thru 1873 so that now the scarce 1872 seems to have the more common 1871's prices - anyone want to buy an 1872 in MS63 BN for a mere $325? I know I would!

Mercury Dimes: prices have gotten switched around so that it now appears that the 1931 dime has been assigned the prices of the 1931-D and therefore the Philadelphia dime looks more valuable in lower grades than the Denver dime. When was that ever the case?

Maybe not an error, just a big price hike - most all of the Standing Liberty Quarter values remained static over last year's values, except the 1920-D took a big leap in lower grades: G-4, from $50 to $85, VG-8 from $60 to $115, F-12 from $60 to $150, VF-20 from $120 to $175. Not sure what happened in the past year to justify such a leap for just one SLQ.

    I plan on buying one but not for a while yet. I hope they correct those errors before I get it.

    I went to the Whitman Publishing website and e-mailed them, asking them to forward the issues about Mercury Dimes and Two Cent pieces to the authors.

    I noticed they've been stuck at 462 pages for a few years now. For many years the old Red Books were stuck at 256 pages. More and more info was jammed in those 256 pages every year. They just refused to add additional pages until the 80s(?). I hope they don't get stuck too long on 462.

    They duped the mintage for the 2019 D RoNR into the 2019S proofs

    Things were shifted down

    What happened to our Whitman man? Haven’t seen him on in a while

  • 1982 S Lincoln penny says the small date is a proof penny. Not true the 1982 S was only made with a large date.
