I found this in my grandfathers closet

As the title says, found this while searching through some of my old grandfathers things. I don't know much about them myself though.

Hey, it isn't worth much, I'll offer you $100 plus shipping for it!  :-)

Apple II Rev 0

It's a rare Apple II Rev 0 (first revision).

On eBay, this model sells for thousands of $$$.

Missing parts

I see there are missing parts (RAM & memory jumper blocks). It will obviously lower the price.

Pity it's a vented case. Unvented would go 10k+ easily.

S/N 900 with matching logic board and P/S should fetch a few thousand easily, even with missing parts.

Shhh!!   I was trying to get this cheap.  :-D  Just kidding.  He's right, this is highly collectible.

It was originally sold like that. It is not MISSING anything.

There are so many modified and upgraded A2S1 out there.

It is nice to see one in its original state :-)

I was wrong, its missing at least one memory block and maybe the ram.

Maybe it was defective and put into storage early on?

I'm not entirely sure about if/where any missing pieces are. I know that my grandfather was into computers back in the punchcard age and went to all the original COMDEX expos. I couldn't say where he picked it up and my grandmother memory isn't working right either. I'm not entirely sure what I'll do with it, but the odds are pretty good if it's worth something I'll sell it to help pay for her nursing home.
