 First Release, 8GB model

Factory Sealed iPhone, includes original FedEx Shipping Box

Incredibly rare “uncirculated” example of a first release Apple iPhone that arrived to us sealed in the original FedEx shipping box.  There are two “ship dates” on the label: 6/29/2007 (launch date) and 7/11/2007.  Both date to within 2 weeks of the original iPhone release.  The shipping box has never been opened and the phone remains preserved inside.

Our consignor has instructed us to carefully open the box.  We will open the package and remove the phone for the very first time.  The iPhone is presumed to be factory sealed and in pristine condition.  Photos and/or video footage will be added in the coming days. 

Addendum 10/25

Offered here is an “uncirculated” FIRST RELEASE iPhone 8GB model from the original iPhone launch in the summer of 2007 (correctly dated June 29, 2007 on shipping box). This is the first uncirculated example to hit the auction block. The phone arrived to us sealed in the original FedEx shipping box and we were instructed by the consignor to open the box and reveal, for the very first time, the factory sealed iPhone contained within. The box opening was hosted by Apple Insider and a direct video link of the box opening is posted at the top of this listing.

Mint condition factory sealed examples of the 2007 first release have proven quite desirable amongst collectors. Our last two examples of the 8GB model have achieved impressive sales of $63,356 (February 19, 2003) and $53,725 (July 16, 2023). 

Here we have a hobby first. Never has an uncirculated factory sealed iPhone fresh out the shipper (captured on video) been offered to the collecting community.  Sharp corners with pristine colors and labels highlight this special example. Includes original FedEx shipping box.
