If the results from the November 14 and 15 Breker Science & Technology auction tell us anything, it’s that recent high selling prices for examples of the Apple 1 computer aren’t necessarily raising those of other iconic early computers. Of the 10 offered, only three sold: an Apple Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (TAM) for €1,000 ($1,245 USD), an Apple II for €1,800 ($2,241 USD), and a Heathkit H8 for €600 ($747 USD).
The Apple TAM and H8 bids were within the range of recent selling prices for comparable systems, while the Apple II–in above-average working condition–was at the high end of the range.
Systems not even drawing an opening bid included the Processor Technology Sol-20, an Altair 8800, an Apple Lisa 2/5, and an original Apple Lisa. Opening bids for all were within the range of recent selling prices for each system.
