I didn't see an explanation of the VN9 on the other thread, is that an early version of the serial numbering? Or do we not yet know what's going on with it?


I'm still not quite sure about the VN9 units, but I know they can't be early versions of the serial numbering since most VN9 units still have original VN1 serials beneath the VN9 stickers. Actually, I think my VN90000057[5] unit is the only one that I've seen that had the original VN1 sticker completely removed before having it replaced with a VN9 sticker.

I did find another one, and as you can see, it's just another sticker placed over the original.

I don't know if anyone else has discussed this possibility, but has it occurred to anyone that the V9 series are likely units that were sent to Nintendo for repair? I know that SNES units sent in to Nintendo were given new serial number stickers beginning with '9' to denote that they had been repaired under warranty - the similarities between that and the VB, a mere handful of years later (when they would almost certainly adhere to the same process) are hard to deny.

I believe this is the reason for the "V9" serial numbers, and the fact that the V9 stickers were placed right over the V1 stickers suggests this as well.
