LONDON (AP) - One of the world’s first personal computers will be auctioned as a historic relic in London.

Christie’s auction house in London is selling an Apple I computer, one of only 200 produced by Apple Computer between 1976 and 1977.

The computer sold for $666.66 in 1977 with no casing, power supply, keyboard or monitor. It came with a signed “thank you” letter from Steve Jobs, one of the computer’s designers and the current CEO of Apple Inc.

The computer is expected to fetch up to 150,000 pounds ($239,010) when it is auctioned at around 2:30 p.m. (1430 GMT, 9:30 a.m. EST) Tuesday.
