    Contra [Rev-A, Round SOQ, Early Production] Wata 9.0 A+ Sealed NES Konami 1988 USA. This is the first installment of one of the most quintessential sidescrolling, run-and-gun co-op video game series ever created. The round, Nintendo seal of quality indicates this copy is from an earlier production run of the game. During our November 2019 Signature Auction, a Wata 9.6 A++ copy of the same variant from the Carolina Collection sold for $14,400 -- and we know there are collectors out there kicking themselves for missing out on that one! Originally designed as a coin-op arcade machine, Contra was later ported to the Nintendo Entertainment System and was considered a must-own title. There are countless sequels, and the original NES version has been ported to a long list of different platforms since its debut.
