Dude, your tabletop is fucking MINT! Awesome pick ups, and a Pretty good selection of games too, although I'm pretty sure Rampage isn't an official release, just in case you weren't aware.

Got this guy today. Some of the arcade collectors might know why this one is a little bit special.

Is it because a lot of these were converted?

The Red Donkey Kong's were the first DK's then they went to blue DK's. There were between 1500-2000 Red DK's versus 160,000 Blue DK's. This one is Serial #1333

Great find! Early DK are very hard to come by especially if you find one with the 5 slot speaker, even though yours is a seven slot it still is a rare red DK, All the red Donkey Kong's are converted Radar Scope that did not sell, making Nintendo to come up with a better game for the Arcades so Donkey Kong was created. Nintendo only made 1200 Radar Scope but only converted about 800 of them so If your serial number is a TKG2 it's was a Radar Scope converted, if it's a TKG3 it's was made a red Donky Kong from the factory but still only 1000-2000 where made. Nintendo made 75,000 blue DK's in all! Very nice find!
