I just noticed my Mario bros end label reads MARIO BROS.* P. What does this mean? Do I have a reproduction? Does P stand for Prototype? Does anyone else have this?

No, it's just the PAL version :)

I have a similar cart. P on the end label and it works fine on my US system. Anyone else have a similar cart?

There are known variants of other NTSC games that have the PAL "P" on the end label.  Specifically "Joust" and this thread suggests maybe Video Pinball, too:

I have a NTSC Joust "P" - it would be cool if there were a Mario Bros variant, too.  Sadly, I can't be sure of mine because the end label is missing.

Sometimes PAL works just fine in NTSC but colors are changed. Check what you see with Atarimania for example.

But as pointed before some NTSC carts are mis-marked.
