An Apple-1 computer with its exceedingly rare original box, signed by designer Steve Wozniak will be auctioned by Boston-based RR Auction. The computer was restored to its original, operational state in September 2020 by Apple-1 expert Corey Cohen.
Aside from the presence of the exceptionally rare original shipping box, the most remarkable aspect of this Apple-1 computer is that it is documented to be fully operational: the system was operated without fault for approximately eight hours in a comprehensive test.
A comprehensive, technical condition report prepared by Cohen is available to qualified bidders; he evaluates the current condition of the unit as 8.0/10.
Accompanying documentation includes the original Apple-1 Operation Manual and original Apple Cassette Interface manual, which feature the original “Apple Computer Co.” logo, designed by third Apple co-founder Ron Wayne, on the covers. The Operation Manual features information on getting the system running, using the system monitor, and expanding the Apple system.
Among the other 25 items included; is an Apple keyboard signed by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak; computers from the collection of software pioneer Roger Wagner, materials from the collection of Apple’s first COO Del Yocam, and a rare musical cue sheet from Pixar’s Monsters, Inc., signed by Steve Jobs, Randy Newman, and others.
Online bidding for the Steve Jobs + Apple Auction from RR Auction will begin Dec 10 and conclude Dec 17.
