An unopened first-generation iPhone was sold at the LCG (London Capital Group) Auctions 2022 Fall Auction for a much higher price than planned.
The auction was held from September 30 to October 16, 2022. The starting price was $2,500, the organizers expected to receive about $30,000, but the final bid was almost $40,000 ($39,339.60).
This iPhone has retained the original packaging with polyethylene, the barcodes and other information on the box are also perfectly preserved.
In August, we reported that a similar lot was sold at another auction for $35,000.
