    Default Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt Label Variant

    I just recently acquired some NES games that will be shipped in a few days.

    I noticed in the auction something that seemed a bit off. Upon a good face against monitor squint inspection. I notice the label for SMB/DH was nothing like I had seen before, So i googled around and found nothing other than its not the EU version. From the pic I found of it googling it appears to not be a five screw . But it seems fairly unique or rare (similar to yellow metroid).

    So if anyone knows anything about this (pics below) . Thanks

    Normal US Cart

    Seems to be lacking the Nintendo Seal of Quality.... Bootleg?

    Good point Kangaroo, I didn't even notice that *slaps forehead*. so I'm thinking bootleg or Replaced Label? The later seems unlikely as that is a pic i googled up. So there are at least two floating about.

    I never noticed before but I too have two different label layouts on Mario/duck hunt. I will take a guess BUT NO factual evidence yet, I think one might have been packaged in with the "action set" and the other was after market, buy in the store. I don't know but I am curious, if you find out post it please.

    I just found this NES Oddities 7: Official Seals and Subliminal Messages so most likely not a bootleg.

    I have both variants as well. I was hoping one was rare and maybe worth a little more. I'll probably keep both as its fun to have one of each in the collection.

    Awesome, awesome!! Finally an answer. I had my suspicions if you read my last post thinking it was from the action set but I wasn't 100%. Now the one question remains… if the one variant was released only in a numbered few "first edition" nes action sets without the seal whether it's a typo or forgotten or even didn't exist, is one worth more or any rarer than the other?
