This original and sealed 2007 iPhone sold for just over $63,000

Apple’s original iPhone went on sale in 2007 and a model from that era, still sealed, has now sold for a huge sum. In fact, this sum is so large that it is the most ever sold for an iPhone.

The phone was sold by LCG Auctions and the lot ran from February 2 to February 19.

The OG iPhone had a total of 27 bids, with the final winning bid of $63,356.40 being $599 less than the original retail price. And that seemed like a lot of time, too.

The item’s auction listing made it clear that the buyer wasn’t just buying a phone. They will buy a piece of history as well.

An original first-release iPhone in factory sealed condition is considered a blue-chip asset among high-end collectors. Impressive public sales of $35,414 in August and $39,339 in October last year led to extensive media coverage from major outlets including the Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Fox Business and others. There’s no doubt that interest in culturally relevant collectibles is growing rapidly, and despite impressive sales numbers, many believe the space is still in its infancy.

It’s not clear at this point where the phone will end up or if it will ever see the light of day. But considering the amount of money that has been spent, it doesn’t seem like anyone will be in a rush to break that seal anytime soon.
