This April, an unopened copy of Super Mario Bros. was sold for a record $ 660,000. Only three months have passed since this record was broken.

A rare early production version of the classic NES game sold for $ 870,000 yesterday at an auction held by Heritage Auctions.

It is believed to be one of the very first hitherto unopened copies of The Legend of Zelda. Moreover, it is the only known unopened copy from the first batch. According to Heritage Auctions, the cartridge sold on Friday is from an NES-R batch. Nintendo released this version of the game for only a few months at the end of 1987.

“In fact, this copy is the earliest sealed copy that you can really hope to get,” – so the auction house described the rare lot before the auction.

By comparison, last year a 1988 edition of The Legend of Zelda from the more common batch of Rev-A was sold at Heritage Auctions for $ 50,400.
