Beware of sales under market value
It has come to our attention that a seller in France has recently sold two copies of the English KoF2000 cartridge to two different buyers, for less than the current market value. There is also concern that the manual wording is not as sharp and words are not lining up with the official licensed NGF version, and the insert is not as brilliant and detailed.
(reproduced copies of Metal Slug, Metal Slug 2, Double Dragon, Blazing Star, Ninja Masters, and Kizuna Encounter have all surfaced from France)
NGF has been offering a verification program that authenticates and protects the integrity of the official KoF2000 cartridges and owners.
Certificates, Holographs, and Title Registry
Upon valid authentication, we issue a Certificate of Authenticity, a Certificate of Ownership (titled with the owners name), and issue 4 special Holographic serial number stickers (#001-#100) to the Certificate, cartridge, insert, and manual (all numbers matching). The owners name is registered in the NGF archives for posterity, reference, and historical provenance ownership of each cartridge.
**Beware of KoF2000 English Edition cartridges being sold without the proper documentation!!!!
KoF2000 English cartridges should include the following:
NGF authenticity stamp on the insert
NGF distributor sticker on the cartridge
Certificfate of Authenticity
Certificate of Ownership Title
4 special Holographic serial number stickers
(on the CoA, cartridge, back of the insert, back of the manual)
All owners should have their cartridges verified and authenticated.
This is a FREE SERVICE to the initial owners.
FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION
Be careful when buying a KoF2000 English Edition cartridge if it does not include all the proper documentation!!
**Since the verification program is fairly new, some people have not yet seen the certificates (over 40 people have already participated and have received their certificates).
**UPDATE: PHOTOS ADDED**
KoF2000 English edition: #001 and #004
As digital printing continues to get better, we see more and more reproduced inserts, manual, and stickers of many rare games such as Metal Slug, Double Dragon, Quiz Chibi, Turfmasters, etc... We have also seen reproduced copies of the rare KoF2000 English edition.
With today's technology, it is very easy to forge documents and even receipts claiming "a lost stock" of Kizuna Encounter (or any other cartridge) was found.
The KoF2000 verification program provides certificates to assure owners that their copy is the official and licensed edition, and not some cheap reproduction or homemade edition.
