NES System with 1985 motherboard

Post by StevieGoodwin » Sat Mar 06, 2021 6:57 pm

How old is my NES system here? I have a fairly early system with a very low serial number that starts with N0213020 with a very odd motherboard inside. The motherboard is a 1985 NES-CPU-03 with 5 smaller chips saying Toshiba Japan and the CPU is a RP2A03E and the PPU is a RP2C02E-0. I can send photos of the motherboard if anybody if wants to see. I’d be happy to do so. :D And it also has an extra third screw in the metal shielding at the right side. Does my system have any value whatsoever?

Compared to other US front-loaders? Not particularly. Compatibility is ever-so-slightly lower.

But we're also not the market for people actively seeking out Rare Things, so take that with a grain of salt.
