Highlights: Steve Jobs' $4 check from 1976 sold for an unprecedented sum. The $4.01 check was issued by Apple Computer Company in 1976 and delivered to electronics chain RadioShack. American auction house RR Auction expected the check to sell for at least $25,000, but it sold for a higher price. Another check signed by Steve Jobs was auctioned off this week by Sotheby's, and could sell for more than $40,000. The check precedes Apple's founding date, April 1, 1976, as it was written on March 28, 1976.


The paper signed by the legendary founder of the tech giant is worth much more than the product he purchased with it. According to the auction house, the check was sold at a surprisingly high price

A check signed by Apple founder Steve Jobs sold at auction this week for $46,063. The $4.01 check was issued by Apple Computer Company in 1976 and delivered to electronics chain RadioShack.

Jobs filled out the check on July 23, 1976, while he and co-founder Steve Wozniak were working on an Apple-1 computer. They produced about 200 Apple-1 computers, of which 50 were sold to The Byte Shop in July 1976 for $666.66.

Radio Shack's check includes a customer service phone number and a P.O. Box in Palo Alto — the address of his parents' home, since the company was initially run from the driveway. American auction house RR Auction expected the check to sell for at least $25,000, but it sold for a higher price.

This is one of several checks issued to Jobs and Wozniak before they received the custom-printed checkbook in the name of Apple Computer Company.
