A rare Kenback-1, the world’s first personal computer, will be offered at Auction Team Brekker in Koln on November 7.

It carries an estimate of $22,000-44,000.

The device was released in 1971, five years before the Apple-1, and retailed for $750 each. Only 40 were ever sold, making this lot extremely rare.

It was designed mainly to teach programming skills and was marketed chiefly towards schools. However, it was soon overtaken by the Apple-1 and is relatively unknown today.
