hellol.
Can anybody explain or give me a link to the topic about this case?
I am really lost about collecting g&w with boxes without serial numbers- some people say it is fake and others that is normal( depends on serial?)

Best Regards

Hi

I hope I got the properly meaning regarding your question….
as far as I know, not all boxes have serial numbers, means that boxes without SN are not by default fake ones. Others have serial numbers. You have to look about other attributes, such as the carton, colours, drawings on the box etc. then you will be able to spot out the fake ones

have a look on this topic (copies): www.gameandwatch.ch/en/gameandwatch-fakes.html

just one thing, if both (game & box) have the serial number, they do often not match, because plenty of the games were put by collectors in other boxes, as the really "original" ones were already thrown away….

hope this helps, cheers

This is something I can't undersant... why the hell would someone (who's a "collector") throws away the original box?!?

The topic regarding originality of G&W items is a must! Many thanks for such a topic!

BTW, the only piece I have in which game and box's serials match is Popeye Wide Screen (PP-23)... :(

That's simple to answer Carlos ;)

I guess 30 years ago we all were not really collectors yet… (as we are now)

so imagine you arrive at home with a brand new Mario The Juggler (NOS/mint) for let's say 30$ or so, to be honest, the box is completely out of scope, I want to play the game :mrgreen: only purpose is to store the game, but also here, cardboard is not very durable… and wich child will put back the game always in the box? My games were everywere in my room, but not stored in the box… :)

cheers, gameandwatch

Ehehehe! You're absolutely right, gameandwatch! I didn't think about the issue under this point of view!

In fact, all the G&W which grew up with me have their boxes in a not sooooo good condition comparing to the ones I've recently acquired to complete my collection!

BTW, it was very good to use Mario the Juggler (mint!!!) in your example! Its prices in eBay nowadays are totally prohibitive! :(

Regads, Carlos.

Hi Matti,

Some game/box serial numbers are "matching" although they don't match identically. Most of these were early releases from Japan, and it was done for inventory purposes. The serial number was even put on the cardboard "shipper" that stored 10 games for shipping to various shops. Later the box and game serials no longer matched, as apparently the inventory strategy changed. Some of the latest releases don't have serial numbers on the boxes at all. So then, if a box doesn't have a serial number, or the number doesn't match, it doesn't necessarily mean any counterfeiting or swapping was done.
