Not understanding how this got a 9.2 with only this as grader notes. I thought minimum 9.4 but I thought at least 9.6. Don’t understand.

If you post a scan of the book it would be easier to tell.

Last time I e-mailed them it took at least a week for a response back.

Fingerprint smudges on the front cover of a Modern Age book are a grade killer. The only thing worse would be a front cover crease.

I had it cleaned and pressed then it was sent in so I don’t want to say they did it but it’s possible it’s from either the grader or BAS when getting a certified autograph on the book.

Dry cleaning won't get rid of finger prints.

Just looked at the photos I took before sending it in and it was there before I sent it so it wasn’t CBCS or BAS. I just missed it. Lol it happens.

When I started sending books to CBCS for grading four years ago, every book had grader’s notes, even those that received 9.8’s. There was a lot more detail then; often 3 or more defects per book were mentioned, even on higher grades. Since there has been growing pressure to reduce turn around times, you don’t get any notes on 9.8’s anymore, and it looks like they only list the worst defect or two. Notes take time to type in (and could potentially create data entry errors), and time is money. So the good news is that the current TAT is at 5 weeks, the trade off is less information is available through the grader’s notes.

Happens to the best of us. I've missed all kinds of crap even when looking right at it.

Maybe we should start a list:
- finger prints (-0.2 to -0.4)
- smudges (-0.4 to -0.6)
And so on.

I have an invincible iron man 7 (1st Riri) with a light finger print/smudge on the cover dead center...I guess I know now what grade to assign it. I paid cover so it’s still a win.
