If you are buying new from a retail outlet then it will not be the Deluxe Edition, it was generally only available from Kickstarter and at conventions.

If you are looking at buying from the secondary market then it will be labeled "Orléans Deluxe Edition", otherwise if it says just "Orléans" it will be the regular edition.

If you're looking at a picture, the box is taller (when laying on its back) and heavier. The "normal" version is closer to the size of any other boardgame, where the deluxe version is closer to the size of Terra Mystica or Caverna.

Note that the deluxe version is far from essential. I was actually unhappy with the print quality of the cardboard components and ended up importing the DLP version. That said, the wooden discs and gears are something I enjoy having, and the metal coins are nice (they're very good quality, though there are several alternate sources for good quality coins nowadays).

I would verify this as it was not my impression. I have the Deluxe which is for 5 players so I can't confirm for the standard TMG version

Neither the DLP or TMG versions play 5 as standard. You need to buy the 5 player upgrade kit. You can also buy a component upgrade kit including wooden meeples (instead of chits in the base game, or wooden discs in the deluxe version) and wooden cogs.

Board Game Bliss sold them for $35 CAD, you can maybe ask them if they plan to get more copies of the upgrade kit.

Really, I have it and you won't be missing much if you pick up the "Fan Kit" from dlp. It adds the fifth player and includes wooden bits, which aren't quite as good as the deluxe ones (I think round tokens are easier to play with), but are still wooden. The only thing you are missing I think are the metal coins and the resource tokens which arguably need to be chits anyhow for random setup (we draw ours out of a bag to try to offset the problem a bit). The coins are nice, but there is nothing really special about them - they don't even have Orleans written on them. On the other hand, the fan kit gives arguably nicer bags. The dlp version also has a much nicer linen finish for the tiles, and they match the expansions, so much so that I'm considering buy a dlp copy as well, just so that we have the nicer tiles...

By the time we consider selling, trust me - you won't want it, it'll be worn out!
