Huge Apple Mac collection valued at $14,000

A huge collection of Apple Macs, dating to the tech giant's early years, is offered at Roland Auctions.

All originate from the collection of the famous New York based Apple retailer and repair shop Tekserve, which recently closed its doors after close to 30 years in business.

The auction house comments: "Apple computer aficionados, technology collectors, and dedicated patrons alike will vie for some familiar (and many never before seen) items from the iconic store's permanent collection."

These will include a single lot of 35 Macintosh computers including a first generation signed by company co-founder Steve Wozniak, an original iMac and a 1994 iBook.

It's expected to realise $12,000-14,000 on August 23.

The sale will feature a wealth of other rare technology from Tekserve's archives, including radios, typewriters and even a robot.

The company's five cent Coca-Cola machine is also up for grabs.

Tekserve was founded by Dick Demenus and David Lerner after one of their Apple Macs stopped working.

The prohibitive official repair cost led them to set up their own business. Over the years, the store acted as an unofficial ambassador for the brand.

It even appeared in a 2001 episode of Sex and the City.

Steve Jobs' leather jacket, which he can be seen wearing in a famous photograph, sells at Julien's Auctions next month.
