concerning the "ac adapter" i guess i could've been more
specific.out of all my vb units with official nintendo
ac adapters (not the taps) that say made in japan,this one
came with a official nintendo ac adapter that says made in
china that has a different texture of plastic than the ones
made in japan.pluss the part that plugs into the tap is a
darker grey than the ones made in japan . both different
adapters mention snes and virtual boy on the plastic.
i also forgot to mention that the sticker on that unit is
alot shinier than the rest.
WOW check out the post before this one.

This just confuses me even more lol. So we know they cant be the first off the production line as they purchased it in 1997. I feel confident in this because the earliest units were for Nintendo employees as both of mine were Nintendo sales peoples systems that were used to demo to retail owners. More over, it would be hard even for the Virtual Boy to have its initial production systems to sit on the shelves for 2 years. This shoots down the idea that they were refurbished systems which after looking into it made a lot of sense because they do indeed do this. These systems really are a curiosity.

Is it the Performance Adapter?

I'm pretty sure that the last I checked mine, it said that it was made in China.

Do the letters, numbers, and bar code on your VN9 unit look bigger than the typical ones, like with VUEFinder's VN9 unit, or do they look the same size and style as the common VN1 units?

Here is a picture of my Serial number, hopefully this will help solve the mystery. Sears during most of the 1990's had moved the video games to the children's section of the store away from the electronics. They were probably sitting on the systems for a while. I purchased this one and another for a friend for the clearance price of $20 each. They had at least 25 units stacked up on a floor display unit. I remember that I wanted one of the systems for several months, and I finally had the chance to get one for a great price.

One thing I just noticed, there is another sticker below the top one. I pulled off the bottom to reveal the true number VN103133575. It may have been a refurbished unit. Sears must have been forced shipped these systems to get rid of them. I threw my box away years ago, I now wonder what number was on the box.

Thanks for the info johnme,that explains alot especially coming
from the original purchaser of the unit. This system has boggled
my mind for quite some time and now i can give it a rest.

Just a quick question for all Japanese Virtual Boy owners out there. Should the serial number appear anywhere else in the package (e.g. box, manuals etc.) aside from the bottom of the VB itself?

I just saw a boxed VB for sale at an online store that shows the serial number on the bottom unit as well as on a sticker pasted on the last page of the instruction manual. Is that normal?
