Wayne relinquished his part of the deal just days later, receiving $800 for his shares. He bowed out in part because of past business venture failures as well as the fact that all the partners were personally liable for any debts the new company might accrue. That original founding contract sold for $1.6 million in 2011.
Last year, Wayne sold his collection of draft copies of the Apple-1's manuals for $20,000 via Christie's.
The Christie's Apple-1 auction is taking place on the London-based auction house's website.
