  • I don't normally do this kind of thing but here goes.

    My father is going to be putting a NES store model up for auction soon on eBay. I believe they call it a M9 display. It has been restored some as it is 30-40 years old now. Anyways, I thought maybe if anyone here is a gamer/collector or knows anyone that is, they could put a bug in their ear. When he posts the auction I will put the link here for people to see. This is a somewhat rare item as far as I can tell, it's not easy finding previous sales data so I'm hoping the rarity allows him to do well on it. If anyone is knowledgeable about these any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!

  • A working NES by itself will usually fetch around $100-$200, and a complete deluxe set with a working ROB can go for as much as $1500. I have no clue what the store model would go for, but I would expect much more than that. I see one sitting in eBay unsold as a Buy it Now for $20K so I would call that a ceiling. Good luck!

  • Wow. I forget that the original NES is almost 40 years old. Makes me feel old, lol.

    This is the first time I've ever seen a store display. Care to share how he acquired it?

  • I think he traded some old classic toys for it like 20 something years ago from another wheeler/dealer type fellow. Not sure where that guy acquired it from.

  • If you haven't already done so, I would suggest promoting your listing in Nintendo NES Facebook groups.
