Why was a $200,000 Apple Computer left in the trash?

Apple_I_ComputerA few days ago a Californian woman left a large box of electronics at her local recycling plant in Silicon Vally.  She was cleaning out her deceased husband’s old possessions from her garage, she then left without leaving any contact information or hits to who she was. A few days later the employees at the plant opened her box to find a vintage Apple I Computer one of only 200 that were build by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ron Wayne. The recycling center quickly sold the Computer to a local collector for $200,000. The center is now trying to locate the woman to give her 50% of the profits as their policy entails. The president of the recycling center says that he remembers what she looked like by it will be difficult to find her since she didn’t leave any contact details. The only thing he knows for sure is that the woman drives an SUV.
