    Two brothers from the very early days of Apple Computer - employees #25 and #27 - are auctioning off a set of high-value collector's items:

    They include an Apple 1 (starting bid of $30,000), a Disk II drive (serial # 000001), prototype boards for the Apple ][ and ///, a pair of Apple-logo sunglasses custom-made for Steve Wozniak, and Apple employee phone directories from 1983. All include signed letters of authenticity:

    I want the Newton BIC listed. I'd wager that gets a hefty price tag.

    Ya the Newtons are what I would like the most. I am curious what these will sell for.

    I'm guessing 10K+ since they were never released and could be the only ones in existence. Also they are the long awaited tablet that could have been released over a decade ago.

    If I am way off I could swing $250 for one.:D

    Cool stuff - I actually like the Phone Directory...

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    That clear-case Newton "Cadillac" is pretty damn cool. I have two Clear case Newton 110s, and it would be nice to add to the collection. I cannot afford the $2400 price tag though. I wonder if it's possible to even get the unit working. It looks like this might have a backlit display, don't know if it's color or black and white. Pretty interesting looking piece of equipment.
