Thanks for stating that evidence too Nadim - that will help with our case.

If I remember correctly, wasn't one of the controllers he sold gold top and gold bottom? Which one was that if I am correct?

Well after this fake E3 debacle, I'm happy to report there is still hope that legit E3's can be found. I recently picked one up off eBay from spartan_043 (item # 251319947704). This is currently listed on ddr's list as #13. The vertical measurement of the "N" logo is 18 mm. It feels smooth to the touch. Visually the edges are not rounded at all and to my eye this certainly looks like a legit E3. I've uploaded some photos of just the logo, along with a photo of the 18 mm measurement. Please take a look let me know what you guys think.

I asked the seller to provide as much background information about the controller as he could. As far as he knows, he was the second owner. He purchased it from a collector in Seattle about 7 years ago, which suggests the original owner could have been a Nintendo employee. I believe it has been speculated that some of these were given out to Nintendo employees, rather than being won at the E3 Starfox competition, but I'm not sure if anyone has confirmed that.

Nope, not engraved. They are indeed on the outside of the controller

Part of the sticker is coming up a little bit as you can see in the third photo. It's the really skinny diagonal section in the middle lower portion of the "N". Kinda bothers me and the thought crossed my mind to try to fix it somehow with glue or heat and pressure. But I'm not going to touch it since I'd probably end up making it worse, and then I wouldn't be able to live with myself.
