This is the only "questionable" cart I own, and I just want to make sure it's legit before I sell it.

Looks legit to me.

Although, are there any markings on the chips at all?

Nope, that's what threw me off and made me start this thread.

Here's the high quality shots incase I'm not seeing something.-

There's writing on the chips, but I can't make it out in the pics... looks like it's either been chemically/physically erased off the chips or it's laser etched on them.

Can you read them?

Writing on the chips looks legit from what I can see. Was the cart label a repro?

wow thats crazy. I could have sworn there was no writing on the chips when I looked earlier, but I just looked again, and they are labeled, I just had to get better lighting or something.

the chips are labeled:

--------------
065-V4 W20
9403E7011
--------------

---------------
065-V3 W19
3402E7004
---------------

---------------
065-V2 R26
9402A7049
---------------

Ect... their are no MX roms. My camera can't zoom in close enough without blurring stuff.


I'm pretty sure the label is original, but here's a shot just in case. Kind of an unusual serial # too.

Instinct tells me that this is a boot.
Will pull mine apart tomorrow to confirm.
If you have the unibios, run the CRC check to confirm.

Nah, it's legit. I just looked at mine. Exact same boards.

The labling on the chips has faded on his for whatever reason, but I could make out the P1 in the first pic.

Should be:

065-P1 W14
9404E7013

I stand corrected, just inspected mine, it is identical (fortunately in a clear plastic cart so no need to dismantle)

This cart is real SNK goodness :) The real deal.

I have a few carts that also have faded text on the chips. I don't see any sign that this is anything but legit.

yeah, it's legit. I have the same exact thing, but I have a partial kit and everything seems legit to me.
