A 100,000 dollars check is waiting for a mystery California woman who donated a rare Apple 1 computer to a Silicon Valley recycling firm.

Clean Bay Area discovered a rare find: a vintage Apple 1, one of only about 200 first-generation desktop computers put together by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ron Wayne in 1976, which it sold for 200,000 dollars to a private collection, Stuff.co.nz reported.

The company policy stated to split proceeds 50-50 with donors, so they are looking for the mystery woman who refused to get a receipt or leave her name.

In early April, the woman dropped off boxes of electronics that she had cleaned out from her house after her husband died.
