WTS: Blue Box board by Woz

I have a complete, loaded Blue Box circuit board made by Woz in late 1972 or early 1973.  No keypad, transducer or box. I do not know if it works. 

PM me with offers. 

 

Thanks.

How do we know it was made by WOZ?

It might help if WOZ authenticates it.  Shouldn't be impossible to do.  You would get a pretty substantial price if it's authenticated.  Just say'n ...

Wouldn't hurt.  It looks legit to me.  The board layout, parts and soldering job look very similar to one that was up for auction at Bonham's.

We have an original one at the VCF museum in NJ on loan.  We are in the middle of major renovations this month so it's not easily accessible with the museum closed and in pieces but when we finish renovations, I can open it and take hires pic for comparison.  
 

if you can get Woz to authenticate it, that would add a lot of value as there were many copies and replicas so provenance needs to be established.   If you have some other documented provenance that may work as well.
