Will CBCS grade X-O Manowar 1:500 metalcover2451

COLLECTOR JLS_Comics private msg quote post Address this user
Forgive me if this has been asked already. I searched but couldn't find it.

Apparently CGC won't grade the 1:500 brushed metal variant do X-O Manowar #1?

Is this the same for CBCS or not? What would be the grading standards utilized for the metal pieces?

CGC grades it so a little surprised CBCS doesn't.

I thought it was a photoshoped image but thats a legit CGC copy of the book.

OP, CGC said they wouldn't grade it for you?

@jimmylinguini I was thinking about snagging a copy now that the price was dropped over 50% from pre-order prices.

So inquired and was given the same response basically that Steve wrote above. I'm a little surprised to see that 9.8 on eBay though. Did anyone check the serial number?

The reason we won't slab them is because books with metal covers are heavy and have sharp edges. They can cut through the inner well while bouncing around in the delivery truck when being shipped.

We don't slab them because of the high risk of damage to your book. The last thing we want is for your comic to be damaged.

If you look at the ebay auction is has a back scan that makes the item look very legit.

Sucks at CBCS won't grade them but I would call CGC and ask for clarification before even thinking about sending it to PGX.

Its legit. Seller is well known on Valiantfans site. It's listed in CGC new census. Graders notes are mentioned in thread of Valiantfan site. Here is the link to ValiantFan Buy/sell which also has graders notes in the thread.

Also, there are no sharp edges so I don't think it would damage inner well.
