For instance, an E8 ROM might be numbered 341-0014 or 341-0014-00 and have "E8" stamped elsewhere on the ROM. In most cases, this also seems to apply to "-A", "-B" suffixes (or having no suffix).
A WORKING APPLE II
VERY RARE "REVISION 02" MOTHERBOARD!
WITH LOW SERIAL NUMBER #18977
(THIS IS NOT A II PLUS!)
HERE'S WHY THIS IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND MUSEUM GRADE OFFER:
The Apple II
1. An original, really beautifully preserved Apple II, all around including bottom.
2. Low serial number #18977.
3. Original 1978 Motherboard #7907 with the number handwritten (they donât do that anymore these days ;) (see picture). Motherboard is "Revision 02", extremely rare since these were only made for approximately 4 months between August and December 1978!
4. Original silver color power supply #A2M030-33960, with handwritten modification of the model number (they also donât do that anymore these days).
5. Original Apple II keyboard with all original keys and with the lifted âPowerâ button which works. Of note: the keyboard attaches to the motherboard through the colorful (not grey) ribbon connector used in the early days of Apple (see picture).
6. Original 1978 âApple Computer ROM cardâ. Rare.
7. Sup âRâ Mod II Ch33 TV interface unit, for connection to TVs or monitors. Not rare at all ;)
8. And itâs still working as you can see from the picture.
9. First edition manual, 1978, âProgrammerâs Aid #1â from âApple Utility Programsâ series.
10. First edition manual, 1978, âContributed Programsâ from âApple Software Bankâ series.
11. First edition manual, 1978, âApple II Applesoft â Basic Programming Reference Manualâ. This manual includes a mint version of the folded and detachable âQuick Reference Guideâ still firmly attached in the manual (see picture).
12. First edition manual, 1978, âApple II Basic Programming Manualâ, written by Jef Raskin, Apple Computerâs 31st employee. Jef Raskin started the Macintosh project in 1979, the Macintosh being named after his favorite apple variety McIntosh.
13. First edition manual, 1979, âThe Applesoft Tutorialâ, based on the âApple II Basic Programming Manualâ by Jef Raskin and written by Caryl Richardson. This manual includes the very rare âErrata Sheetâ to correct the information printed on page 148 (Apple Part #031-0044-01).
14. First edition manual, 1979, âThe doâs and donâts of DOSâ, written by Brian Howard, Apple Computerâs 32nd employee and Phyllis Cole who expanded Appleâs publications department when Jef Raskin started the Macintosh project.
15. First edition manual, 1979, âApple II Reference Manualâ, written by Christopher Espinosa, Apple Computerâs 8th employee. This manual contains a 17ââx20ââ mint fold-out version of the patented âApple II Main Logic Board Schematicâ (see picture).
16. First edition manual, 1980, âThe DOS Manualâ. This manual includes a mint version of the folded and detachable âQuick Reference Cardâ still firmly attached in the manual (see picture).
I can provide pictures of the back of these manuals too.Â Most of the manuals available today are from a second or third edition in 1980 and 1981, simply because more Apple II computers were sold then.
17. Two rare, working, original âApple Computer disk IIâ drives Model A2M0003 in very good condition. Both drives have the rare early colorful ribbon connectors instead of the typical grey connectors. They are clean all around and each has itsÂ original 4 feet.
Interesting is that one drive (serial #198149) has the trademarked âApple Computer Inc.â logo with âTMâ while the second drive (serial #394066) has the registered âApple Computer Inc.â logo with âRâ. It shows the legal evolution of Apple Computer as a company.
Also special with these drives is that they both have the bypass âDisk Switchâ which avoids the need to remove the floppy disk from the drive to then âpeel offâ or âstick onâ the âWrite-Protectâ stickers. That was a useful feature when revising programs. It also allows to write on the back of disks. Very rare.
18. Original 1978 âApple Computer Disk II Interface Cardâ which connects the Apple II with the then new and revolutionary disk drives.
19. A very rare one page sheet with âInstallation Instructions for the Disk II cable connectorâ (Apple part #031-0013-00) explaining how to connect the disk drives to the interface card to avoid unrepairable damage.
20. Extremely rare âApple disk IIâ box to store floppy disks. While the box itself is a rarity what makes it exceptional is the fact that 1) on the front side the âRâ Registered Mark logo is missing on this box, and 2) on the back bottom left corner the Apple Part number is also missing (see pictures). I donât know if this was a prototype box or the very first version, I would think itâs the latter. In any case, if you already find such a box it most likely has the R logo and product number printed on the box. Not this one!
21. Set of three floppy disks in their very well preserved (front and back) âdisk IIâ sleeves with the colorful Apple rainbow logo. Includes the âDOS 3.3 System Masterâ disk to get started and the âDOS 3.3 BASICSâ disk from the âdiskwareâ series.
22. Very rare, 48 original âApple II Computer 16 Sector Diskâ stickers with the red Apple logo. These were used to label computer cards and disks which supported 16 Sector Disks that could boot themselves up (Apple Part #026-0033-00).
23. Complete sheet of 20 silver colored âWrite Protectâ stickers, to protect disks against accidental overwriting.
24. The hard to find soft carry case in faux leather that Apple specifically designed for the Apple II and the first in a series of carry cases Apple designed for its products over time. The case measures 21âx18âx6â, is clean and is in very good condition inside and outside. It has a pouch inside and comes with the original shoulder strap which is also detachable. The bottom has all four original feet as designed.
25. Two rare black Apple Computer paddles (see picture) which can be directly plugged into the motherboard; connector in perfect shape.
26. Working BMC KG-12C monitor âSolid State Data Displayâ (manufactured March 1981) with the âOwnerâs manualâ and the âSchematic Diagramâ for the monitor (picture available). Very rare to still have these original documents with the monitor. The monitor comes with an end 70-ies video cable to connect with the Apple II.
27. The extremely rare to find prelaunch (!) original and full color 4-page Apple brochure for the Apple II. Titled âSimplicity is the ultimate sophistication â Introducing Apple II, the personal computer.â Printed on heavy weight paper in April 1977! This is prior to the official release date of June 10, 1977 for the Apple II. The brochure is in excellent condition after almost 40 years, exactly like Apple distributed them for a very limited time in a folder with a collection of copies that served as a mini-manual. That is the reason for the three punch holes and a slight vertical fold on the left; Apple made it like that. As far as I know this is the only time Apple used an actual apple to introduce a new model.
28. The original 2-page advertisement from Apple for the Apple II in Byte Magazine of October 1978: âWhy Apple II is the worldâs best selling personal computerâ. Hard to find this piece of Apple history in this excellent condition.
29. Very rare, 18 original âApple Rainbow Logoâ stickers of varying size. Complete set.
30. One earliest version, original and mint âApple Rainbow Logoâ sticker on brown background, with the very specific guidance âBend Back And Peelâ. Apple Computer Inc. name written in its early daysâ âMotter Tekturaâ typeface.
