One of just eight known functional Apple I computers is going to auction on May 20 in Koln, Germany. It is expected to fetch an auction price of US$190,000 to 320,000, compared to an original selling price, in 1976, of US$666.66. Pretty good return… The machine, serial number 73, comes from the private collection of an IT engineer in Berkeley who bought it in November 1976, and comes with all original documentation. Only 200 Apple I computers were ever built, and many of those were destroyed after a trade-in offer for the Apple II. Also on the auction block, other interesting historical artifacts, such as the Rasmus Malling-Hansen Writing Ball typewriter.

Ars Technica, “One of eight remaining functional Apple I computers goes up for auction in May.”
