You're assuming this will go at the current price, which is below the
reserve, which I am sure is no less than $40-50K. I know the guy selling,
and he won't take anything less than $40K for it, last I spoke to him.

It's not the "Holy Grail". Its not the 1st Apple 1 as was advertised
during the much publicized auction. The actual 1st Apple 1, as given to
Liza Loop by The Woz himself, still resides in the Silicon Valley.
