@cyrano0521 off topic. Would be better to make a new thread about this.

I'm still waiting for my two-day modern order to even show up in the system about two weeks after it was submitted at a show. I don't hold my breath for turn around times anymore.

Did this come from CBCS or a private sell? I don’t see any heat seals (at least from my phone) and the graders noted states a tiny piece missing from left corner ... the whole corner is missing! At the very least I would think that file copy would be on the label..

On books in lower grades, there are just too many defects to list them all. The brittle pages alone keep this book below a 3.5, and the other major issues listed keep it at 2.0 (IMO).

Someone correct me if I’m wrong but just having the “File Copy” stamp all over the book wouldn’t get the File Copy Designation on the label, correct? You’d have to submit documentation as with a pedigree, right?

How does pressing play into the 10 book special?

Or signature verification? Maybe one of the CBCS folks can chime in on if this is strictly grading only or if the 10 days would be tagged on after other services.

I didn't get one of these e-mails, do you need to have received one I wonder? Also, I think if I were to submit to this and NOT get them back as promised it'd be the end of my using CBCS. They also just got TATs down. If there's a perception (as expressed here), that they're going to back-burner people's regular submissions, just when they have the TATs down for this...money-grab? Well, I'm not really sure what they're getting out of this.

In blue on very top it only mentions grading. I'd assume vsp is not on the table. Pressing I would imagine is an impossibility.

As for if this email was meant for one specific person, I have no idea.
Maybe a moderator can clarify if I screwed the pooch by posting

Oh, I doubt it's "just for you". Lots of e-mails I see talked about on the forum I don't get. I only get forum e-mails. No way they could do pressing and I'm also guessing sigs would be out. I still may give it a go, expecting some kickstarter stuff in the mail this week that's grade worthy (which is mostly what I sell...and then support more kickstarters). Just don't want to be disappointed.

The offer is on their Facebook page, so doesn’t appear to be targeted/restricted.

Maybe it's a "stress test" now that turnaround times are back in control.

Maybe more of these types of promotions will happen in the future for people to take advantage of when they happen.

Maybe it's the end of civilization as we know it. Dogs and cats...living together.

@SteveRicketts Does the Pancake treatment come into play on the 10 book promotion?

The promo is just for grading. No VSP or Pressing. We will have a pressing promo in the coming month(s) once we get a little more caught up in turnaround.

Steve - I will probably take advantage of this offer, because I have no open orders and it’s weird not to be waiting for grading. I was hoping you would offer a two-for-one deal for first-time press-rookies. You know, make me an offer I couldn’t refuse.

@esaravo That's an interesting idea. I'll keep it in mind.

I think, unfortunately, that I don't have 10 books I want to submit that I don't also want pressed. But I'll be sending stuff in at East Coast con next week, so CBCS will still get my money.

Are you allowed to mix grading tiers with this promotion. I have a few moderns and a few pre 1975 books I would like to submit to take advantage of the 10day turnaround time

19-096958A & 19-0A4F3F6. Trinity dropped them off at awesome con at the end of April. Thanks for checking. I called customer service earlier in the week and was told it was taking time to log in show books.

Do they still back date show submission to the date of the show.?.. if so by the time they enter it into the system you’ll have them at your doorstep!

Does anyone know if you need a paid membership for this? I've only submitted at cons.

I think the only requirement is to have the coupon word in the picture on first page.

Thanks, that's what it sounds like to me too. Just going to go with it.

Sent 12 in today via USPS priority, basically some rare(r) modern variants. I'll let everyone know when I get them back and how it all goes.

I sent in 23 books (me and my brother combined) and it was postmarked on the 15th with the coupon code attached on the invoice. I got an email today saying it was "received by the CBCS Receiving Department and is now being held in our safe, waiting to enter the grading process."

We'll see if the 10 day turnaround promo really is true to what they advertised. 🤔

On another note, i see the banner on the main home page is saying turnaround time for grading is now 5 weeks.

Just fyi - two people on facebook have reported movement on their 10 day submissions. One was received on Thursday and he got a tracking number today. The other was received on Friday and he got an email that they are graded and in shipping today.
