Just down the street from the Book-Off where I bought it, incidentally. And the manual has a serial number that matches the console. How's that for provenance? The system itself is good overall.
No major scratches to the screen. Minor wear to the paint on the back, especially at the edges. Pokémon logo above the A button. The box has a very small tear on the lower right of the front side: see photos for details. The fakes do NOT come with an original box or manual!!
Also of curiosity is the blue insert paper that comes with it, with Mario and Luigi art. It translates as: A Request about Repair of Specially-Made Limited Edition GBA Systems: Because this is a specially-made limited edition product, in the event of a repair, we will use regular mass-market parts. For details, please contact our customer service center. The implication here is that if you were to send this limited edition to Nintendo for repair back in the day, you may not receive matching parts in return.Gold Pokémon Center New York Limited Edition model Game Boy Advance system. Original box (RARE - the counterfeit systems do not include this).
This is an original, authentic vintage Japanese market item. The counterfeit systems do not include this. The GBA is a region-free system and this console will play all GBA games worldwide. If you have any questions, I will be happy to assist you.
