    Hi :)
    I was thinking about if my GBA console and Minish Cap game are legit. I will give you GBA info im txt and Minish Cap with pictures, since there are too many numbers here and there.
    GBA sticker:

    Model: AGB-001
    Serial: AH10822211
    Region: C/AGB-JPN

    Minish Cap:

    Sorry if pictures are unclear, but should be ok with some zoom.

    Thank you!

    That looks like a legit Minish cap for the European region, I'd say. :)

    I haven't seen many non-legit consoles, so it's probably fine.

    Afraid we have to see the PCB these days to tell a game -- there are some with bad cases and labels, or things you can see from the bottom but many are not.

    There are third party/clone GBA consoles but they do not look like normal GBAs.

    That game looks 99.9% legit. The PCB has the nice rounded front edges, the label has the stamped in numbers on the right side. Fonts look right, seal is correct. The back mold circle is the exact dimension you would expect(most pirate carts have a smaller circle). Without opening it up, to be absolute, I would still bet on black and say you got a legit card.

    If your system is a limited edition Zelda SP, the fact its an AGS-001 is good.

    My reading skills need improving. I'm sure your GBA is original, even with zero pics. If it has a front/back light it could be modded or a clone. I have not yet seen a clone GBA using the reflective LCD without lighting.

    It looks legit, but that's easy to fake. It would better to post a picture of the board itself.

    Yeah GBA doesnt have any pre isntalled, or back/frontlight also it plays original gameboy games. I assume these are good proof to be legit.
