    Description

    Adventure Island Prototype (NES, Hudson Soft, 1988) Wata Certified. This internal test cartridge for the Nintendo Entertainment System adaptation of the 1986 Sega arcade game Monster Boy was handmade by the game's original developers. Labeled in sharpie directly on the front of the cartridge casing, now illegible, likely read "Sample." Handmade sticker label on the back. It has been tested and was found to be working at the time it was certified. Prototypes are essentially the original art of the video game world, and as such, do not receive a grade, but are certified as genuine.
    For more information about certified video games, see HA.com/wata.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
