Currently, when we spec metallic paint, if there isn't a Pantone metallic chip that's right (which is usually the case), I have to send our sourcing partner the page out of our DuPont Spectramaster book and hope they send the page back at the end of the project.

To avoid this, I am looking for a metallic paint chip book I can have our sourcing partner in China buy (or buy one and send it to them). I thought I'd just buy the same Spectramaster book we use, but they don't seem to sell them any more. The only ones I can find to buy are used on eBay.

Is there a different system anyone here uses to spec metallic paints overseas?

I use PPG metallics. They have several sets.
