11/20, 2:10am

Unit one of only six known working units

A previously-reported auction in Cologne, Germany of a rare working-condition Apple I computer failed to meet the minimum bid of €180,000 ($242,820) but was sold after the auction had closed, Auction Team Breker has revealed. Two potential bidders were surprised that the item had failed to sell and put in their own bids, with the larger of the two being accepted - €246,000, or US $330,000. The same company had previously sold a rare functioning Apple I for over $670,000 in a previous auction.
