Nope. It was in crap condition, majorly cut traces, holes drilled for standoffs in the Proto area and a lot of replacement parts.
This is what I posted on the VCF forum and pretty much covers it.
$60,300 not too far off the last eBay sale of a damaged board a few years ago, the Huston-2 board. Funny thing is not a few weeks after the Huston-2 sale we had a record Apple-1 sale of a working system for many times that amount.
So I guess we have established a poor condition Apple-1 fetches between 60k and 75k on eBay and a working unit fetches between 300k and 910k at an art auction depending on the condition of the board and accessories.
