If the viagra is working you should be well over a 9.8. xkonk private msg quote post Address this user
@dwhitwo254 Consumer, expanded, and modern were always on the same schedule so there's nothing in your order holding up the others. If you read through the thread it sounds like people are getting books from Septemberish so it could be any time.

Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
@dwhitwo254 - Once you get the grading email, unfortunately there is no accurate appx timeframe as to when you will see shipped. This is because there is still quite a bit of inconsistency on the notification emails and updates to the dashboard. if you peak back at my updates, you’ll see that I noted it looks like the Expanded tiers from my june/july 2021 submissions seem to be moving a little faster than my moderns.

The old Consumer, Expanded, Modern tiers don’t actually move together and are slightly different in there estimated TATS , but fairly similar. With VBCS shipping grade only submissions from September, you probably have at least a month and like2-3 more to go.

Wahoo! My Sept '21 submission is finally into grading.
Anyone know what the 2 letters at the end of an order are? Internal use? They changed from EX to MD in 2 emails with 2 hrs of each other.

Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
@semperfi_ny -
MD = Modern
EX = Expanded (now Vintage)

Also, it may not be that they actually changed, it could just be that you had multiple tiers in the submission and you were just updated as to the status of both tiers (MD & EX) within two hours of each other. They do not actually move through at the same pace usually. I have noted that recently my EX are moving several weeks faster. Conversely, if your submission had an error, such as a comic that was produced in 1976 (MD) but was entered as 1974 (EX), CBCS would change most typically during the Grading process.

Cheers.

Collector Paul_G private msg quote post Address this user
CBCS need to carve out a niche between modern and vintage.
Say books from 1970 to 1975. I have a lot I'd like to slab but they really aren't worth paying the vintage (or Economy) prices. Even better if the TATS are better too.

They changed to MD since they know you'll need an MD after having to wait 12 months

I looked but didn't see anywhere if there is another step after 'Shipping' (such as 'Shipped')? My excitement 2 weeks ago about making it to Shipping has gone down.

- Shipping
- Moved closer to shipping dock
- Shipping has spotted your books
- Shipper contacted FedEx
- FedEx showed up but it was lunch time
- Picked up by FedEx. It's their problem now

@Caffeine_Kid - I have had "Shipping" take well over a month on a couple of occasions. You are in the final stretch! Usually, it is a week or so. The worst is going to "Shipping" on a Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend.

Submission contents: 4 Modern Standard service, no other services

Order made: November 11, 2021
Order shipped: November 12, 2021
Order arrives at Canadian Hub (RIP): November 19, 2021
Order Arrives in Texas: February 1, 2022

Modern part of order entered grading June 29,2022. So, I would say I am a bit surprised based on the info here I really wasn't expecting anything moving on to grading until the late summer or fall.Not sure what is going to happen with shipping when this is all done what with no hub up here anymore. I will not pay them one cent more than I already have.


Moved to slabbing. No idea how long this has been taking lol. While not happy with the TATs I have to say I likely won't be waiting as long as I anticipated.

Had a submission from August of last year (Aug 18, 2021) to be precise.

Which means it probably got to CBCS around the 22nd'ish I would guess.

2 Moderns, pressing/press screening.

It is being shipped out today or tomorrow.

@Caffeine_Kid and other Canadians

Almost a month after my order switched to "Ship to Canada" and more than two weeks after I emailed customer service, I have heard back from Customer Service (they exist!). They needed to confirm my address before shipping! I do understand this because it has been a long time since I submitted my comics. People do move on occasion. However, what I don't understand is the lack of pro-active contact. Were they trying to confirm my address by ESP?

My recommendation to Canadians that are lucky enough to see their status change to "Ship to Canada". Immediately send and email to Customer Service identifying the change of status and confirm your current address.

Before June & July 2021 Press submitters go postal, I have 1 last June Submission and about a dozen Early and mid July submissions that either show as only received or in Pressing. BUT, It has been confirmed to me that they are ALL pressed and in Grading. So expect to see seeing #soon

Another update 2 days after my last one from CBCS:
Your xx-xxxxxxx-xx is graded and now it is time to get the comics into a CBCS case! Your tier has entered the production area of the company and will only be here a short time before it ships out!

5 comics total, 3 moderns and 2 expanded. No press, just grading.

My order shipped shortly after confirming my address! I am tremendously happy to finally be getting my books back...although my dreams about the grades were a bit crushed. I really thought there were several 9.8 contenders. Notes mostly mention "spine stress". I know my grading is better than it was a year and a half ago but I thought spine stress was something I was pretty tuned into. Oh well. Still not bad. At least I can say I have several of the best CBCS graded ASM 252 Canadian price variants.
