Hello, 

           Just wondering if CGC will accept this for grading.  I was just reading another post wherein a book with some interior page overhang was sent back.  there is maybe like 1/16 inch overhang on the front but the back has raw pages exposed..seems like it was just misaligned before cutting, not really worth anything but its pretty cool. lol.  if they will accept it, is there something i can write in the variant spot to be displayed on the slab?  "cut error" etc.. I just dont know what they can / will or will not display on the slab.  thank you everyone!!

ahh i see what you mean, yes the dimensions are still the same.  so when its miswrapped and cut ( showing exposed pages like the back cover) it is still a miswrap, but if it affected the actual dimensions of the book in whole it would be a cut error?  cool! thanks!

Here are some of my mis-wraps. See how the dimensions are still correct?

Welcome to the boards! You can ask them directly via the "ask CGC" section of the board linked below:

https://www.cgccomics.com/boards/forum/23-ask-cgc/

You may want to delete the other duplicate thread you created with a link to this one. Just a suggestion, as duplicate threads in different areas can be considered "spamming", although I don't think that's your intention at all.

That's an interesting miswrap by the way (thumbsu

Yeah, I don't see why they wouldn't encapsulate that.   No overhang.

Cool mis-wrap!

Also, it's not a "cut error", it's just a cool mis-wrap.  The dimensions of the book are correct.

EDIT:  and there is a bit of overhang of the front cover, maybe 1/16th in.

Thank you so much, I didnt know where to put it, and didnt get a response for a day and some, but i know how there are some "dead areas" on some boards where nobody really posts, didnt know if that was the case. also i was looking for a moderator to move it originally, how do i tell who is a moderator or where is a list?  thanks again!  and yeah i  thought it was pretty cool, it would be interesting to get it noted on a label!

No worries at all, and yeah, some areas of the boards get more traffic than others. If you want a moderator to move something for you, your best bet is to click on the "report post" option in the top right of the post itself (screenshot below). You'll need to have your mouse hovering over the post for it to appear though. A box will pop up for you to leave a note where you can just ask them to move the topic.

did you have to note that it was a manufacturing error in the "variant" section when you submitted?

Nah, CGC figured it out.

WOW that miscut book is gnarly!  definitely submitting mine, did you have to note that it was a manufacturing error in the "variant" section when you submitted?

      Little Giant Comics OLD SCHOOL COMIC SHOW 
      Here's the deal, I wanted to create the kind of show I would want to attend.
      GREAT COMICS, GREAT ART & ARTISTS!
      I want to enter a room filled with amazing comics, incredible art and talented artists, I don't think that's too much to ask.
      Seems like every show I attend only has a small amount of comic vendors (usually the same 3 or 4 people I see at every show), the rest of the floor is fidget spinners, Cosplay stopping in front of your booth for photo shoots, sweaty ROOT BEER mugs everywhere dripping on your comics or art, Pirates running around, knick knack patty whacks, energy drinks, Ice Cream vendors and flea market fodder........
