CGCdata.com - CGC Label History
CGC has changed the style on the labels and holders (slabs) through the years.CGC began grading comic books in late-November 1999, and opened to the public on January 1, 2000.
The books shown below are all graded the same, CGC Universal 9.8 Magnus Robot Fighter #1 from Valiant 1991.
The only differences are seen in the style of label and plastic holder - the books are equal in CGC grade.
Older CGC slabs were not sealed on the sides, but sealed at the corners. Slab corners show damage if the slab has been opened.
Verify the CGC certification and graded date information on the CGC website using the 10-digit slab serial number.
The "rainbow", "oily", or "wet-looking" spots where two types of dry plastic touch are called Newton Rings - a CGC statement is here.
