Sellam et al,
It's interesting to see the interest in the Apple 1, or more accurately, the Obtronix Apple 1 reproduction. I'm glad some jumped in to correct/expose the guy.
I'm working on mounting a Obtronix Apple 1 reproduction, hoping to put in up on ebay in the next week (as a reproduction!).
So, Sellam (knower of many Apple 1 owner names) and others who may know, too...
Last year I came across the Apple Syndrome site:
On that page there's links to various Apple product lines, with lots of information. Back in '07 the Apple 1 link was valid, but now is broken. Following that link lead to pages with many photos of a legit Apple 1. Though the site is in Japanese, I gather (also using babelfish) that the site owner is not the Apple 1 owner. I tried several times to contact the site owner in order to contact the Apple 1 owner.
Why? In the photos of the monitor attached to the Apple 1, I recognized a video problem that I ran into when I built my Repro Apple 1. It's an array of small dots across the entire monitor screen. I wanted to contact the owner to provide my bit of insight on the problem.
Does anyone know the Japanese owner(s) of Apple 1('s)? At one time I only had the last name of an owner who had two Apple 1's. Could it be him? Does anyone have photos of a Japanese owner with his Apple 1? As I said the web link was broken and I've tried in vain Google cache and the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine (archive.org)

"I though Sellam knew where all of them were?"
I only know where the ones are that I know of :) I am discovering roughly
2 new ones out in the wild every year or so, though I expect that trend to
drop off sharply over time as I've already located 42 so far and my
research tells me that there are probably (PROBABLY) no more than 50 still
in existence. I emphasize "probably" because this number was deduced
through research that was not exacting (I can provide details if there's
