    I thought you had captured Steve himself.

    ..on another note, this looks alot like an advertisement for an eBay store to me...

    Well, I really wanted other people to atlease check out this awsome vintage item... And, I think if I had Steve, I would be in Jail Right about now ;)

    I got this from a old Macintosh Dealer that went out of business, along with more Mac stuff then you can image... So, yeah tons of free stuff (for those interested)

    :cool:

    Can't steal something that doesn't exist if it defies the laws of physics and thermodynamics:).

    Wow a pointless item. Im sure someone will pick it up and not use it either.

    IMO, its something to collect if you are like deranged or something.

    What is interesting to me is the 1969 computer. What in the world were they trying to make with a punch card and an LP vinyl record? Interesting. But bad photos. Can't see the size and heft of the thing. Post some here! Did you get this from the same old Mac guy?

    The thing is: I can pick up a vintage seal press (Circa 1977) and make an emboss plate with pretty much anything on it. How do we know this is not just made up???

    I could be in possession of the first ever Microsoft Corporate seal, or IBM seal, or whatever.

    Sorry, I am skeptical.

    Please send me some pics, I really don't know how you can have TWO Apple Corporate Seals, unless your joking.

    Sdashiki: There really are collectors that buy some carzy Apple Computer Memorabilia at outrages prices, I know since I have been selling off tons of old Mac stuff. And they'd be happy to have since an item in the collection and even willing to pay hundreds for such an item, trust me.

    California: I'll be sure to post some more pics of this 'thing', I have no idea what then heck they would use this for but its a great conversation piece (Well not where it is on my pile of Macs), and yep came from the same place as all of the other Mac stuff I have (5 Storage lockers, my attic, my basement, my store, etc full of such things)

    Zarathustra: I do see your point and did some research to ensure this is the real deal (and it is NOT From 1977 that is the year of incorporation), and as far as just making such a thing, I found places that can (So long as I provide documentation of incorporation - and yeah thats hard to fake :) ) also they charge $115 plus shipping, so yes it would be pointless to make a fake one... Also there are many brands of corporate seals and you need the right seal with the right desk unit for it to work, and after talking with some profession corporate publishing companies, they said odds are it is genuine Apple!


    barneygumble: Yes, we all wish it was something cool like that, but if (and I don't think there is such a thing) there was anything that new it would be locked away in Apple's HQ :rolleyes: .

    Posting more pictures (here) later today!

    I have a grilled cheese sandwich with an image of the woz. I ate most of it though, I was hungry, so now it's just his shoulder.

    Doesn't anybody else see this as a sneaky way to get a for sale item posted when the OP isn't qualified for Marketplace.

    Really -- Rarest Apple Item Ever? As if this wasn't an intentional come-on.

    If it were a real 'collector' item of interest to this forum, a photo and no mention of the eBay link would have sufficed.

    Bleh.

    Why is everybody so negative? Be realistic. This collectible isn't likely to sell in these forums. Humor the guy by letting this thread die painlessly!

    WiFi = Infared

    I saw that auction of the 'Newton WiFi Printer adapters" and umm, yeah I beleive those are Infared, not WiFi. You might want to fix that before someone buys it and complains because it was claimed to be something else, just a heads up.

    Well, I do thank you for trying to protect the MacRumors Community from BS posts, but no thats really not what I am doing... Thus, since I can see where you are comming from I have took the link down, and posted only pictures (HIGH Res), and this IS IN FACT one of the RAREST Things I have (And I have: Apple Lisa 2/10, Macintosh 128k, Prototype Parts Included a computer [1994] never produced, and TONS of things like that.) I would call this the rarest of my items.

    And, thanks for the update about the WiFi, all fixed.

    Part of a "Wall Street" promo for dealers?

    That stamp looks like it might have been produced as part of a "Wall Street" promo for dealers in 1997. The stamp features the year and state of incorporation.

    There are some gems in this collection, but this probably isn't one of them.

    :rolleyes: ;)

    Haha. That's probably the funniest thing I've heard in awhile. But what can I say, I'm a chemistry and physics nerd.
