After a Bay Area woman dropped off boxes of old electronics to a recycling company last month, workers found a rarity mixed in with the keyboards and cables.
Clean Bay Area said the unknown woman dropped off several boxes of e-waste at their recycling center in Milpitas, California. She left without leaving her name, but she told workers she decided to clean the boxes of old equipment from her garage after her husband died.
Weeks later, a manager opened the boxes and found an Apple 1 computer inside.
"We really couldn't believe our eyes. We thought it was fake," Clean Bay Area Vice President Victor Gichun told NBC Bay Area.
The company sold the vintage computer to a collector for about $200,000, and now, they're looking for the woman to give her half of the proceeds.
