old price tag on Subterranea-box

Recommended Posts

hi guys,

 

I just got a boxed Subterranea (PAL) from Imagic (what is a wonderful addition to my collection)

and it has an old price tag which says: 398.00

I wondered, which country/currency this could be from?

Which country had a currency, where 398.00 could be a reasonable price that days?

 

Greetings Jens

Well maybe France, 398 francs (there were not yet Euros but Francs at this time, and the atari 2600 was around this price as far as I can remember), or maybe England, 398£... Is the text on the box written in English? Is your console a Secam, NTSC or Pal version?

Woooop I just saw it is a Pal version... So France may not be the your answer, the format was "Secam" for all those old stuff... So, as I said before , maybe England...

It's French.

France used PAL and (some) Secam VCS carts way back (even though their TV system is Secam, most releases were in PAL).

398 francs equals approx GBP 39.00

 

Here's my second hand Parasite Eve (PSX) I purchased in France, for comparison (approx 13 in UK pounds (GBP was still strong in 2004 compared to the Euro)):
