In June 2019 pictures showing Jamis McNiven holding an Apple-1 in his hands appeared at the internet.

It is on display at famous Buck's of Woodside restaurant. The signs say:
Apple Computer 1
In Steve Jobs parent’s garage in 1976 Steve Wozniak built about 200 Apple 1’s. Less than 70 are known to exist today. It is by far the most sought after collectable in Silicon Valley history. This one is courtesy of Andy Rubin. Steve ‘Woz’ Wozniak and Steve Jobs in 1976. This computer came with no case, keyboard or monitor.Woz signing the Apple 1 May 19th, 2019. In the picture are Elvis, Marilyn, Andy Rubin, Roy Rogers, Rudolph Valentino, Jamis MacNiven (Buck’s owner) Woz and by coincidence, Steve Jobs in Groucho glasses looking over Woz’s shoulder. Just a typical day at Buck’s.
Andy Rubin wrote to Achim Baqué October 2019 and kindly shared the information he got about this Apple-1:
First known owner were the brothers Dick and Cliff Huston. Apple engeneers and employees number 25 and 27. They owned a 2nd Apple-1. #21 in the Apple-1 Registry.
Cliff Huston walked into Steve Jobs office and noticed a pile of Apple-1 boards. Steve told him that they were to be destoyed (probably this never happend). The pile of Apple-1 were trade-ins for Apple II. Cliff asked, if he can take one and one for his brother. The story goes that people around pple asked the Huston brothers why they want the Apple-1? It's history, just history was the answer. That is so true.
Andy Rubin bought the Apple-1 at eBay June 2012 for US$ 75,600.
Andy Rubin left it on the table of famous Buck's of Woodside restaurant 2019.It took the owner Jamis McNiven some time to find out, who the Apple-1 left.
Andy gave it to Jamis for displaying it at Buck's.
Registry caretaker Achim Baqué visited Jamis in August 2019 for a 3 hours talk. Two days later he visited him again together woth Daniel Kottke.
The Apple-1 was on display at Vintage Computer Festival West 2019 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, USA.
The Apple-1 was renamed Oct 2019 to “Huston #2”.

PROMs are probably not original. All other components looks original.
Some traces cutted and reconnected. Some manual soldering.
