RARE 1984 1st Macintosh Carry Case for 128K and 512K- Beautiful Collector Quality- w/Original Red Macintosh Hang Tag!
From the description:
"25th Anniversary Collector-Quality original 1984 Macintosh carry case! This case was introduced along with the very first Macintosh system in January 1984! Made by Apple Computer, Inc. This exact style case is shown in the original 1984 Macintosh User's Guide in the Accesories section, and in the first Macintosh advertising literature from early 1984. This one is extremely clean, original tan/beige color, all metal snaps and zipper are intact and work great. Includes original detachable shoulder strap with shoulder pad. The rarest feature is that this one still has the original red 'Macintosh' hang tag, version A, still attached in the clear hang tag holder! Most of these were used so no longer have the original tag holder, let alone the original red Macintosh tag!! This is highly collectible in this complete condition as priginally shipped from Apple. This is an exceptionally nice original early Macintosh collector's item!"
