It will be very interesting to see if this excellent Apple 1 computer will bring a price near or more then past auction bids. Only 2 determined bidders are needed to bid the price to these or higher levels. Of course if those 2 or more bidders are participating  in the auction we will find out November 16, 2013 at 4AM EST the final $.
