Schedule an appointment with us! Jake_Fleming 37 7 monthsWalker1 (18): I recently sent books by mail and had it so they had to sign when recieved(sent usps). They signed, sent an e mail when the books were put away until graded, once grading started and I am sure once sent out. To ease nerves use a system that tracks mail sent out like usps.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 3 yearsJesse_O (14757): What does a checkmark (asterisk online) by the grade mean? In rare cases, a comic book will look much better than the given grade. In these rare cases, a Check Mark will be placed on the label by the numerical grade. The best way to understand why a specific comic book received a Check Mark designation is to refer to the graders' notes. Example: a comic is graded 8.0. However, the covers are such that it looks like a 8.5 or a 9.0. CBCS...
