A bit of the personal computer industry’s history will hit Sotheby’s auction block in June.
Prospective buyers will get to bid on one of only six known working models of Apple‘s (NASDAQ:AAPL) Apple-1 computer, Computerworld notes.
Hand-fashioned by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, the Apple-1 retailed for $666.66 when first sold in 1976. Unlike subsequent Apple computers, the Apple 1 was sold as a just motherboard, without a case, keyboard, monitor or power supply.
The fledgling company built about 200 of the computers before introducing the Apple II in 1977. That computer came fully assembled.
Sotheby’s expects the Apple-1 to sell for as much as $180,000.
It isn’t the first time Apple-related memorabilia has gone to the auction block. In 2010, an Apple-1 with documentation signed by the late Steve Jobs sold for $213,000 at Christie’s auction house. In 2011, Sotheby’s sold an original copy of Apple’s founding documents for $1.6 million.
Also up for auction is a 1974 memo written by Steve Jobs during his brief tenure at Atari.
The four-page memo, with one page handwritten by Jobs, discusses improvements to a coin arcade game. It is expected to fetch between $10,000 and $15,000 at auction.
