I have acquired a Mint in the Box Apple IIc Computer System that has apparently never been removed from the boxes. The system belonged to a lady who can't remember where she got it from decades ago, and it was sitting in a closet until she decided to put it in her antique mall booth. The system includes the IIc, sealed monitor, monitor stand and AppleWorks software. All boxes are completely sealed and look as if they were just shipped from Apple. The AppleWorks is still perfectly shrink-wrapped. The Apple IIc box is not taped on the outside and has conventional flaps for closure; however, the corrugated cardboard box within is taped and sealed as one can see in the photos.
Putting my iPhone camera (Thank you Steve) in the slots of the box handle, it appears that some dust has migrated onto the exposed surface of the IIc. There are also a few blemishes on the IIc box, and a few tears are also present on a couple of corners, but for the most part the boxes are immaculate, and quite displayable. I am absolutely in awe every time I pass by this system as it sits proudly on my dining room table. I personally will not violate the boxes to see if everything is operable, nor will I try to repair any of the blemishes. While this beauty is in my possession it will be handled with extreme care and respect. As I type this post I am actually enjoying watching a documentary about Steve Jobs!
I really hate to have to deal with selling this system on EBay, so please let me know if you are interested in this iconic piece of Apple History in a very rare mint condition.
