Was looking at a Western Penn Pedigree, does anyone know any info where this pedigree's history lies? Google does not have much info.

My understanding of this is that the Pennsylvania Pedigree and the Western Penn Pedigree are different. Is that true, I'm very ignorant on this topic

I don't know much about the history of the pedigree, but I have several raw Western Penn's. Among the most impressive ( IMHO ) are the 70's Charlton issues. Anyone who collects Charlton's from the 1970's knows how krappy their printing was. The WP Charlton's I have are probably the most beautiful examples of those books I've ever seen.

As far as I know or remember I don't recall a back story I do remember when Heritage started selling the books. It was announced in the scoop news letter around 2010 Western Penn's I remember picking up a few bronze age lots when they where in the Sunday auctions. They brought decent money and reminded me kind of Mass copies. And yes the Western Penn pedigree is not the Pennsylvanis's. Click the links for the backstories.
