Well now that the cat is out of the bag and the Apple-1 from the book, "The First Apple" by Bob Luther is up for auction at Christies. I was helping the owner prep this board at the end of September.
Now this board isn't the same quality as the board that sold at Bonhamns, but the story and documentation makes up for that... So it really depends on the type of collector you are
This is not a perfect board but has tons of related documentation, where the Bonhamns was a perfect board, but had little original documentation directly Apple-1 related.
This was not a "byte shop board", but an early Apple-1 sold directly by Steve Jobs, most likely without the knowledge of Woz, it seems he has done that before. If you have read Bob's book, you'd know how it moved through different hands and I can confirm the suspected use as a video "announcement" system for what must have been an automobile repair place.
So first the repair story to bring the system back up.
First step was to figure out all the rework and wiring... here is an example
Looking how it was all wired up and the wiring in the case, it appears that an eprom was wired up to drive the 6820 PIA with characters. The keyboard connector's reset and clear screen were wired up in a strange way, but understandable way, using diodes to use a single toggle switch to clear and reset the system and also setup to allow a programatic clear screen. It appears from the circuit that they used an external selection system to choose the string that was "typed" into the Apple-1 terminal section. The PROMs were not programmed with the Apple monitor, but appear to have been involved with driving the video "announcement" system. There was also a modification to the video circuity to increase the signal strength.
All of this circuitry had to be carefully removed since it's not like it was a printer adapter, it would inhibit the Apple-1 from operating as it was originally sold by Jobs.
Upon further investigation this unit did have a cassette adapter at some point because the correct pads were "tinned", but the line had been removed. and an original ACI was not included. The RAM was also not correct for the system and I sourced the correct original date correct RAM.
Before powering up, I went through my normal procedures for all the caps.
There were a few bad chips also, which I sourced with correct components.
I did have to make the power supply "safe" and also do some work on the datanetics keyboard, which was included when Bob acquired the board but was wired up to work with an Altair PIA. So I rewired it for the Apple-1 since it would have been the exact type of keyboard used in the day.
I also provided a spare modified Apple II plus keyboard and a replica ACI so that the system could be comfortably operated in the future as Datanetics keyboards really need to be used continually or they will need "work", so this was a good compromise to make sure when ever the system is fired up, it works perfectly.
And so the system is now fully operational.
Here is the rickets board with an original ACI "borrowed" from another machine.

And before you ask, I don't have any close up pics of the checks written to Steve Jobs other than what's being provided by Christies.
