If you were billed for grading on the books that failed verification then yes, you should get a refund on the grading fees. If you don’t see that after you’ve received the books then contact the billing department.

Also, just because the signatures failed verification does not mean they are fake. Stan Lee’s signature in general is infamous for failing verification as it varies significantly, especially in his final years

Thanks I'll keep an eye out.
I have a bunch of Stan Lee sigs, but since most of them I got in the 80s I have no trail at all.
I thought the COA would be more successful, but I know nothing.

If the viagra is working you should be well over a 9.8. xkonk private msg quote post Address this user
@Paul_G they don't take anything into account when verifying signatures except for the signature itself. COAs, photos of the person signing a book, none of it matters.

I know they don't look at the COA when verifying, I just meant I feel they should be a little more reliable and likely to pass than random signed comics on EBay.

All good on the billing front, the total was adjusted.

I thought they'd post the grades on the dashboard, but I guess that happens later? (They are now marked as "Shipping"

@Paul_G Grades post once the books have shipped and the order status is changed to Complete

Quick question on the sig verification program. I have a Batman book that Scott Snyder signed and wrote “thanks” on as well. Does the presence of the word “thanks” mean anything? Will the verified yellow label say something like “verified sig Scott Snyder and writing on cover” or do they not even mention it? Just wondering if it hurts the book grade/verification at all.

@bw327 If the signature is verified they should ignore it for the grade and will likely not be mentioned on the label

If already asked, please let me know where...submitting some comics and 1 of them I am REALLY worried about it getting damaged. Should I send it in a BCW top loader or just over bubble wrap everything. Does CBCS return the top loader or trash it? I could care less, would just like to know.

Thank you un advance.

I would use toploader and bubble wrap. Or double box the hell out of it.



They prolly trash the toploader. They aren't sending that back to you.


Edit
I have seen some folks put in toploader. But in gemini then put in box. That was the safest I've seen.

Interestingly, I got the books a week ago (yay!), but the dashboard still says "shipping" and no grades have been posted.

I mean, no biggie, since I have the books, but it doesn't bode well for work flow.

Question about books with Inserts like posters or tattoos like spawn 1 has a poster or amazing spider man 238 has tattoos. How big of a ding on the grade dose a book get if it’s missing a poster or a tattoo.

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
@Travis They will be labelled “Incomplete” and the grade will be capped at a certain level (maybe 7.5, maybe dependent on what is missing)

Hi!

This is probably a silly question but I cannot find any updates on my actual account/dashboard. I received an email stating the comics were graded and now in shipping. However, I can find no additional details on my account.

I thought I would see the grade or at least the list of graded comics under recently graded section but it still says no comics.

Are the grades available online after they have been shipped? Or do I just wait for them to arrive to see?

Thanks!

@Airwave Grades are available on your dashboard after the books have shipped from the CBCS facility

I got my books! I am pretty happy overall, but I do have one concern.

I got a Sandman back at 9.2. I am happy with that, but do the covers sometimes get shifted a bit from the interior of the book in the slabbing process?

The notes say:
spine stress breaks color at edge, few small color scuffs
minor front & back cover bends, dents, tiny edge wear

But it looks like I can now see the pages behind the cover.

I took two photos to see if it would explain what I am seeing.

Does it look askew to anyone else?

How long do the books stay in processing? I my books were received in November last year and outside of the one change in status to “processing”. Haven’t really had any movement on the books.
