Shipment received April 30th, 4 books, 3 modern 1 Bronze all with FastPass. Just got the email saying they have been graded and are entering the "production" phase, I guess where they get encapsulated and labeled.

This is spot on!

.... and today is Groundhog day for those that were wondering

Today is actually Christmas for me. I just got notice that one of my shipments has been received and charged to my card. Try to imagine a year ago if someone had told you that 3rd party graders would be this overwhelmed with submissions. That just getting your card charged would be a red letter day. No one would have believed it.

@EbayMafia out of curiosity, what was the wait time for you for you to be charged? Just trying to determine when I too will be charged. It would be great if CBCS does what CGC is doing for received orders, they note what orders they are opening (ie opening orders received on 4/12).

@waynemel The order I was billed for today was most likely received at their office May 5-7.
I'm putting another submission in the mail to CBCS tomorrow. That will put me at 7 active submissions currently, 4 in May, 2 in April and 1 in late March. I think there's danger on the horizon in the form of inflation and supply shortages. I believe TAT's from both companies are likely to grow before they shrink. I'm a big believer in acknowledging the worst and at least hedging accordingly. So I'm getting a lot of books slabbed that I would have normally pushed off into the future and I'm selling enough slabbed books through MCS to cover the costs.

I think there will also be a migration of CGC'ers who have simply had it with TATs (and the other issues); and will use CBCS right now. Don't know how many; how much percentage, but it could impact CBCS TATs also with the differential.

This submission moved in to "shipping" today, both by email and in my dashboard.

And now it went from "shipping" to "shipped". Not too bad for my first (technically my 2nd, but the first has a press and signature verification in it and no Fast Pass) submission to CBCS. Sent around April 15th or so, marked received on the 30th, shipped back today:

Well, I sent 2 books to CBCS Dallas for 2-Day Modern treatment. Today USPS shows “left with individual at address” and my shipping label showed order number and 2-Day Modern designation. It’ll be fun to see this process goes.

This makes me sad. One sub is a a reholder and the other was slab-only with VSP. Still no confirmation that they've shipped.

try clicking on the link to the actual invoice - updates in status will show there - don't hold your breath though.
I've had orders with no updates only to move through all stages in a day or two

Sigh.....1 day to go for week 11 to be done in 'ShipToCanada' on 1 order and week 9 on another.

11 f$%king weeks about to go on 12 for shipping??





Maybe instead of me using the pressing promo for faster pressing they could offer a shipping promo so books make it back in a reasonable timeframe

Maybe it's something to do with the exchange rate for Canadians.

10 weeks TAT is really 12.10 weeks Canadian

I was thinking more like it had to do with us using the Metric system.

Hi Everyone,

I noticed ppl here get updated status on their submission, My January 2021 submission stays at 'Processing'
I have been told by Steve that its in the grading queue, but wonder why my status never changes.

Any Idea?

if you click on the link and download the invoice updates to the status will show there - although not always. I've had orders zip through all steps in just 1 or 2 days!!

yeah..you may be out of luck...they are very hit and miss with actually updating the status's? stati?? I wouldn't be surprised if you get multiple status updates all at once as it prepares to ship.
