I am looking for any Apple-1 manual or Apple-1 related artefacts. For example price list, ads, cassettes, bills, letters, business cards of 1976/1977, ZALTAIR sheet etc.

Yes, many collector try to get hands on it and yes I am familiar with the price range. Any offer welcome. Please write a PM to mail and we can talk about it. Gladly confidential.

A friend successfully got 2 Apple-1 manuals this year - unbelievable. Hopefully more owner think about selling it. And for this friend (not me) I try to find a Sanyo VM-4209 made in 75 or even better 76.

Thanks

I’m surprised that your friend was able to buy two original manuals recently. My assumption is that there are more original Apple-1s out there than surviving original documents, but perhaps that is a bad assumption.

Re: WTB: Anything about Apple-1

There were a bunch of doc sets that were sent to dealers to promote the Apple-1. So they do show up periodically, however they aren’t cheap as the people who have them know Apple-1 owners are looking to complete their collection.

BTW, I don’t think there are more surviving doc sets then Apple-1 boards which is why most don’t have documention anymore.

Cheers,
Corey

Re: WTB: Anything about Apple-1

Everything associated with the Apple-1 can have almost any arbitrary value attached to it these days. It's hard enough justifying the valuations for the boards themselves, let alone things like manuals, price lists, etc.
