Open it up Nintendo says the numbers on the circuit board don't lie. The first 1000 Can be identified by the component serial numbers inside the controllers, and there not sure if even 1000 were ever shipped out.because of controversy over glitch jumping over wall. Once I'm assured from Nintendo I can get an authenticity letter from them. I will carefully open mine up and read off numbers and symbols to them. But 2 phones calls and no one assures me they can send a letter like that... why not ? I have the box they sent me and everything with it.postmarked in June 1997.... lol what I gott a million dollar controller dated before some v.p. or pres. Or somebody there. For a gold painted controller....alxbly wrote:First post in the topic:Ganondorf wrote:is there a way we can tell the difference between the first 1000 and later models of the gold controller??ddr2nite wrote:There probably is no way to identify any of the 1000 gold controllers that were given out as part of this contest unless someone had the original shipping box from Nintendo + contest winning letter (if there is such a thing).
