Following, Apple’s founding contract auctioned for $1.6 million at a Sotheby’s auction on Tuesday, Apple co-founder Ronald Wayne shared a collection some 62 early documents of Apple stored away in an USPS envelope in his office, which include hand drawings in pencil.
Wayne’s shars includes a copy of a founding documents sold at Sotheby’s, as well as the document that he handed in when leaving the company. Other interesting documents in the collection include an Apple I manual with Apple’s original logo designed by Wayne, and a purchase form for the Apple II.
“About a week ago, we traveled to the desert to spend two days with Ron Wayne. The 77-year-old Pahrump, Nevada resident has had a number of careers in his long life, working for Atari, a few slot machine companies, developing devices for use on the ocean floor and running a collectables shop in Northern California,” Engadget said.
In his semi-retired state, Wayne sells stamps and coins to supplement his checks from the government… During our time in Pahrump, Wayne was kind enough to let us comb over a number of papers from his days with the nascent computer company.
