An extremely rare first batch Apple-1 computer with a serial number (“01-0050”) handwritten by Steve Jobs is up for auction, and it could sell for over $300,000 USD. This particular example has been verified in working condition by Daniel Kottke, who was one of the first employees to work at the company when the Apple-1 was being manufactured.
Aside from the Apple-1 computer, it also comes with a period-correct power supply made by Brittany McGannon, complete with a Sanyo VM-4509 monitor as well as a Datanetics keyboard. Other features include a modern cassette interface, power supply, connecting cords, and a reproduction of the original operation manual signed by Steve Wozniak as well as Ronald Wayne.
