Owner from the West Coast want to be anonymous. For this reason the name West Coast is used.
On the back is a handwritten number. Many first batch Apple-1 got a handwritten number that looks like a serial number. This one is different. On all known Apple-1 the format is 01-00xx. This Apple-1 shows the number 01-0002, one more digit. Handwriting seemed to be different compared to other Apple-1. There is a scratch under the number instead of through the number.
Without further investigation (forensic analysis) it wass not possible to validate the authenticity of this number.

The owner sent the Apple-1 Registry in August 2022 a certificate from DNA/PSA. According to this document it is Steve Jobs handwriting.
