One more thing also.  Many Apple-1 boards had mods or damage so the cleaner, less molested, the better is becoming important.

I started just logging the most recent time each one had been known to be operated.  Since replacement components are still available, I currently consider the number kind of meaningless, since with little to a lot of effort, any one of them could be operated.  It's not like some vintage airplanes or cars, where some key components may not be available to repair a broken unit.
