When CGC graders examine a comic book or magazine, they often enter comments about
the collectible's condition. These "Grader Notes" describe problems, indicate the
condition of the interior pages, and help explain why a collectible received the
grade it did. After the first grader enters notes and their grade, the next grader
can review those notes and can make any additional notes. For comics with the purple
CGC Restored Grade label, Restoration Notes are given that describe the location
and type of restoration. These notes are a valuable part of the grading process,
and CGC now allows Grader Notes to be obtained online.
CGC Grader Notes are available online at CGCcomics.com. The fee for CGC Grader Notes
varies based on the tier the comic book or magazine was submitted under.
Grader Notes for collectibles that you submit are free! To see if any collectibles in your submissions have Grader Notes, simply login and click on “Submission Tracking” in the Member Portal (Note: Free Grader Notes are available on member’s submissions from May 2012 to date. Earlier grader notes are available for a fee in CGC Certification Lookup).
When you enter a certification number for a CGC-graded collectible in the free Verify CGC Certification tool, you will see
if it has any Grader Notes. To unlock the Grader Notes, click the "Get Notes" button
and fill in the required fields. CGC Dealers can expedite the process by logging
in to have Grader Notes billed with their monthly statement.
CGC Grader Notes are sent to the email provided within one business day. If the
Grader Notes form says that delivery will be INSTANT, the Grader Notes will appear
immediately and also sent by email.
