The amount that was planned to be recovered for this lot turned out to be much larger than expected. After all, according to experts, this lot has historical significance not only for Apple, but also for all technological giants.

This check, signed by Steve Jobs, shows the company's first address, 770 Welch Rd., Ste. 154, Palo Alto. It was here that the answering machine and the post office used by the Apple Computer Company at one time were located.

And if we look more closely at this check, it was signed in July 1976 for $175 to Crampton, Remke & Miller, a management consulting firm. Among the clients of the latter at that time were Atari, Memorex, National Semiconductor and Xerox. Apple Computer Company added to this list.

What could the cooperation of companies talk about? According to experts, this symbolized the benchmark for long-term growth of Apple Computer Company. After all, it was during this period that the company developed the Apple-1, received its first large order and undertook its implementation.

The auction resulted in a bid of $106,985. This, according to the auctioneers, further confirmed the historical significance of this financial document.
