There are others on ebay worth more than that.

Doesn't count until they actually sell. Anyone can list them for millions or billions if they want.

Try buying either one of them if you got the money for it.

That label has been moved around a couple times in its lifetime...

hmm.

(psst: never buy NWC gold for a single penny above NWC grey price)....(actually, NWC grey circuit board price....there are some REALLY high def "label" scans out there for NWC gold)

No, not at all.

I'm saying that all NWC golds, regardless of provenance should be held to extreme standards of scrutiny. There's absolutely zero way to verify that any known NWC gold is not sacrificed NWC grey without a shadow of a doubt.

Even the ones that went through Jason's / DreamTR's hands can't be verified unless he has high definition photos of every copy he had. Photos in high quality can prove a record leading up to him by pointing out simple flaws, scuffs, and scratches. Anyone that bought any of his copies (or subsequent owners next in line) could easily forge a gold with any NWC grey and keep the real one for themselves.

NWC Gold should never be considered safe, under any circumstance. The only solace there is, is knowing that a lot of these things were gathered at a time when Nintendo collecting was still a weird and geeky thing to do with little to no money involved in the hobby.

I’ve never thought about it in that kind of level but yeah, you’re pretty on the nose.
