    Description

    Donkey Kong 3 (NES, Nintendo, 1986) Wata 9.2 A (Seal Rating) Variant: Sealed Hangtab, 4th Revision, 2 Codes. The population of this title in a sealed condition can be counted on one hand -- less than 5 have been confirmed to exist, and this one is in incredible condition. A true rarity on the Nintendo Entertainment System -- collectors have expressed to us that they have sought after this revision of Donkey Kong 3 for years. For comparison's sake, a sealed with hangtab revision of another game, Super Mario Bros, made the news in the summer of 2017 for selling at open auction for over $30,000 "raw" (uncertified). While any version of Donkey Kong 3 in factory sealed condition is noteworthy, like that Super Mario Bros., this variation is exceptionally rare as it was only printed for a scant amount of time in early 1987. Nintendo of America very shortly thereafter removed the hangtab from the box cutting die, and by the middle of 1987, the hangtab was no more.
