AOLâ€™s DailyFinance News reports that another original Apple-1 computer is to go on the auction block at Christieâ€™s on October 9. This particular machine, which comes from the estate of former Apple employee Joe Copson, is expected to fetch as much as $127,000 USD, though it may go for much more. The Inquirer notes that this is Apple-1 serial number 22.
Joeâ€™s machine is listed on Mike Willegalâ€™s Apple-1 Registry, where it is noted that it was put up for auction on eBay back in December, 2011 and failed to sell with a starting bid of $170,000.
Update: Mike Willegal wrote in with the following information about Apple-1 serial numbers:
Apple 1’s did not have unique Apple serial numbers. The Byte shop labelled the units they sold with a sharpie on the back. Other units have numbered stickers on them, that were possibly added during the manufacturing process.
