From time to time such prototypes show up at astounding prices (I recall a couple of threads around here that talk about that).

I never knew if one of these were actually sold for their prices, but surely the hype is enough to take it far out of reach for most people's wallets.

pcprogrammer:
Well if things like this https://news.artnet.com/market/maurizio-cattelan-banana-art-basel-miami-beach-1722516 sell for 120000 dollar then why not an old piece of history for so much money.

Personally I find it idiotic but that is me :)

SiliconWizard:
Yeah, Apple I prototypes are commonly around $1 million dollars or so.

Provided that they could prove authenticity, why not. I personally would certainly not buy that, but are they worth this price? In some way, absolutely, if you consider how seminal those were and their historical value.
