While the most recent Apple-1 auction failed to close with a successful sale – bidding on the non-functional unit didn’t meet the $80,071 minimum price – another unit is scheduled to hit the auction block in November.  This particular Apple-1 is not only complete and working, but  comes with several original peripherals including a 9? Sanyo monitor, a Datanetics ASCII keyboard, and a transformer.  The original documentation is included with the lot, though the cassette interface and tapes are listed as “reproductions”.  It would also appear that the MOS 6502 chip currently in the unit is not the original ceramic CPU.  Read more about the auction here.
