I’ve seen some CGC graded book eBay listings with “G11 213 cm clean” or similar in the description. What does this mean?

It doesn't mean anything to collectors.  It might be a code the seller is using to remember who consigned the item or which box the book is in.

Show a pic as I have no idea what you are referring to but I suspect, as mentioned above, it's a unique code to the seller.

I searched the term and 2 books came back. Not sure what it means either, but I'd guess valiantman is correct in that it doesn't really mean anything to anyone besides the seller?

Edited to add: The 2 books are from different sellers, but both are X-Men #2's. Strange indeed.

That is strange. Different sellers, both an X-Men #2. I'm stumped. (shrug)

A listing/inventory code makes sense. Thanks everyone for looking into this. ?

Interesting. I've seen the random number + "cm" before and always wondered if it was some sort of measurement. ComciMylars has been on the 'bay for as long as I can remember (which is nearly 20 years now) and I know I've seen them use that numerous times. Maybe it was just them using it all this time, but it lead me to believe that there was some desirable trait in the book's measurements that maybe indicated that it wasn't trimmed or had some other monkey-work. Maybe I can finally scratch this off my huge list of things I don't understand but am too afraid to ask!
