What is a NES console with a serial # of N0002469 worth?
The board seems authentic as does everything else.

Well, nearly all consoles are bought to play games. The earliest NES consoles had a music channel bug, and other issues. Therefore, I would expect it to be of LESS value than any other console, to a gamer.

I suppose a video game museum or collector might have a specific desire for an early revision system. I remember at least one guy was trying to catalogue every NES revision.

But, personally, I wouldn't pay more than the standard going rate, or about $50-70 (depending if it has controllers and a power source).

In this forum, we're primarily people who care about using these ancient consoles, not collecting them. So we not only tend to undervalue "collectors'" items, but we also seem to tend to be troubled by people trying to take advantage of rarity in hope of making a buck.

I have been given the impression that there are other fora that do care; you might try asking elsewhere.

Would be somewhat interesting to see what board revision it is.

But yeah for value, it's worth whatever someone will pay for it. Probably not much more than a normal NES, unless it comes with the original box, ROB, and all that. The NintendoAge forum has a Price Check section, and that might be the best place to ask.
