Do American GBA Games Have Stamped Characters Behind The Lab
« on: November 25, 2014, 17:35:53 PM »
Hi All,

Today I purchased a GBA game (Grand Theft Auto Advance) from a reputable online marketplace. However, when it arrived, It was the American edition and had the ESRB logo on it, rather than the UK edition which looks completely different on the label front.

Not too much of an issue, but when I done the usual check of the label it didn't have the stamped characters behind the label.

I've got a feeling that the American GBA games do have the stamped characters, but wanted to double check before I contact the seller regarding the issue.

Thanks in advance.

Characters behind the label?  How do you check that?

Yeah I've never heard of that before, but now I'm curious to know more!

If you tilt the cartridge back so light shines on it, you can see 3 characters stamped behind the label.
For Pokemon Sapphire, it's got 08A

It's usually on the right hand side of the label about mid way up.

I don't see anything behind the labels.  What I see are indented numbers on my labels.  Most of the time, they are just two digits: 00, 03, etc.  Most have it at the bottom right but some have the numbers are the top right.
