Apple 1 computer in working order with branded packaging will be sold at auction in December

A fully working Apple 1 computer complete with an original box signed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will go up for auction in December. The device will go under the hammer on December 10th. The starting price of the lot is $ 50 thousand.

In addition to the board, which, in fact, is the Apple 1 computer, the lot includes the original box, the device Apple for connecting cassette players, original operating instructions, original Apple 1 power supply, vintage Datanetics wooden keyboard, 1976 Sanyo monitor and Panasonic cassette player. The auction house has published a video showing the computer is working.

RR Auction notes that the original shipping box is extremely rare and one of the few that has survived to this day. Technical experts rate the health of a computer at eight out of ten.

In the 1970s, Steve Wozniak assembled by hand about 200 Apple 1 computers. Of these, 175 were sold. Apple computers 1 go to auctions from time to time and, due to their rarity, are very expensive. In 2019, one such device was sold for $ 471 thousand, and this year another Apple 1 was sold for $ 458 711.
