A first-generation iPhone, which was gifted to tattoo artist Karen Green in 2007, is being put on auction this month. Green received the device as a present from her friends after landing a job, however, she already had three phone lines with Verizon and the original iPhone was only compatible with AT&T, so she decided to put her gift on the shelf. The auction began on Feb 2, and is being conducted by LCG Auctions. Green had the device appraised at an estimated value of $5,000 in 2019, but decided to hold on to it for some more time before putting it up for sale in 2023. The first-gen iPhone made its debut in June 2007, and with the minimum amount Green expects to fetch ($50,000), she can buy a Mercedes-Benz SUV in India.
