Not sure but it would be very nice if your ShipToCanada status was right.

So here's something new....and I would looooove if someone from cbcs would get back to me about this...
It appears cbcs has retroactively changed my tier and removed fast pass
(Disclaimer- books are now in grading)
Here is the original paper invoice. It denotes fast pass for both tiers-

Here is the screen that updated to show grading and the fast pass has been removed-



Now- I'm not much of a tinfoil hat kinda guy, but that sure looks like a company trying to cover up for a mistake...
Anyone ever seen anything like that before?

and cgc is on only 73 TATS

how is this possible that cbcs is still not even grading orders from this year basic moderns

CGC Economy is no faster than CBCS which sucks because we grade mostly pre-1975.

I follow a couple of cgc groups. There are people there who submitted last Aug and are still waiting for their books. I don't know tier, pressed or not, etc - just saying that cgc TATS may not be 100% accurate.

Hoping for some insight:
This past Friday I randomly checked my order by looking at the invoice using the "print invoice" button, it showed "Pressing" on top right. I just checked again and it shows "Received" now.

Could that mean it's moving to the next stage???

I sent 24 books to CGC in June of '21. One book was pressed/graded/returned to me within a couple of months while the other 23 are still sitting at CCS for pressing. I'm assuming they're still at CCS since CGC removes your submission info after 8 months.

I also sent 10 books to CBCS around the same time and they still say Received.

I emailed customer service and they told me my order was in pregrading waiting on final grades. Does it go labels, encapsulation, then shipping as the next steps?

As you can see from @marsboy01 his books from last August were just graded and sent to encapsulation.
My September 2021 books are in grading now.
So unless you had an express tier, all standard 2022 tier submissions will be awhile. Like December maybe.
I have a February 2022 submission I am not expecting back anytime before Chistmas or maybe January.

I am a bit frustrated right now. I submitted books at Baltimore CC to CBCS October 2021 and was told by the staff at the CBCS table not to have any of the books pressed because it may take a year for the books to get back to you. It is now over seven months and my books (not pressed) are still at "processing". Other company books (including pressed MAGAZINES) are already back to me. What is going on??
