This Original Sealed 2007 iPhone Has Been Sold For Over $39,000 At An Auction

Original Sealed 2007 iPhone Expected To Sell For Over $30,000

Never open anything you purchase. Or, you should buy two of those things.

Although this method is wildly flawed, it might work on Apple’s original 2007 iPhone and allow you to sell it for US$39,339.60. This is what the new offering from LCG Auctions was sold at yesterday. For comparison, the original iPhone was launched at a base price of $599 ($860 when adjusted for inflation).

“This factory sealed, a first-release example is in exceptional condition,” the item description from LCG Auctions says.

“Collectors and investors would be hard-pressed to find a superior example. Relevance and rarity comprise a winning formula for this red hot collectible.”

The top bid was just $10,446 going into Sunday, but some huge last-minute bids saw the price climb considerably before the online auction’s close.

The original iPhone is in pretty good condition and is still wrapped in its plastic case. Knowing that the smartphone is the 8GB version is crucial if you want to open it up, devalue it, and actually use the iPhone.

The listing for the pricey iPhone can be found on LCG Auctions’ website.
