A California recycling company is reportedly looking for the mystery woman who donated one of the most coveted items in computer history.

San Jose Mercury News reported,back in April, Clean Bay Area received boxes containing electronics from a woman who was cleaning her house after the death of her husband.

The company, which is based in Milpitas, California, later discovered that one of the boxes contained an Apple I computer, one of about 200 made by Apple from its early years.

According to the Mercury News, Clean Bay Area recently sold the computer to a private collection for $200,000. It wants to split the money from the sale of the Apple I to the woman 50-50, if they could only find her.


The company’s vice president, Victor Gichun, says “We are looking for her to give her $100,000,” said about the woman, who didn’t leave her name or want a receipt when she made the donation.

I wonder if our leader, TATWZA, has any vintage apple products?

All that Gichun knew was that the woman drove an SUV. In order for the woman to get her share of the money, she would have to stop by at the company’s warehouse so Gichun can identify her.
