I figured I'd try here if Reddit couldn't help me. They did try but, no one's ever seen them. :???:

Furthermore: VHS's marked " For Screening Purpose Only".

Maybe it’s a copy specifically made for conventions or large anime gatherings? Things like that probably would have gained more attention from US anime distributors at around that time. (Manga Ent. released the films in 2001, i think.)

Holy shit dude, you may have hit gold. VHS Evangelion releases are already pretty hard to find, and any US release of End of Eva is super difficult to get your hands on unless you use eBay, but Jesus Christ those are beautiful. No doubt a hidden gem in any collector's eyes, especially since they're clearly official but no one has ever heard of them. I highly, HIGHLY recommend you hold on to them at least. Opening them and seeing if there are any differences between them and retail releases is your call, but I absolutely think you should keep those fuckers near and dear.
Think we could get any pictures of the sides, tops, and backs? It would be neat to see if there are any differences in packaging as well. Ideally, you could use a scanner to get a super clear image.
I've reached a point where I just generally don't give a fuck anymore. In a good way.

What do you mean nobody could help you? They're screeners. They get sent to fan conventions for screenings or to press for review. There's no way of knowing how much they're worth.

New posters who don't post any more messages than "What are these?" with the implication of "(What are they worth?)" always prefer to hear "They are worth a bazillion dollars, the blood of the buyer's newborn child, and two dozen experienced virgins in heaven." as an answer.

The realistic answer, of course, is to put them on Ebay with a low starting price and advertise the auction on a few places. But we aren't here for realistic answers, are we? :wink:
