Four limited edition Apple items related to the Lisa computer and the iPhone smartphone:

A very uncommon “Lisa” pin from circa 1983, 1″ x .25″, featuring the Apple and Lisa logos against a black enamel background. This pin was worn by employees and dealers who received one when they completed Apple’s Lisa product training program. Apple never offered these pins for sale to the general public. The pin is accompanied by a lapel back and a tie tack back.

A limited edition miniature hardcover book about the Lisa computer, numbered 6/6 and produced by Cider Press as a limited printing for the miniature book society. The 3-inch book contains 10 pages of historical information on the Lisa (and the offered Lisa pin) with photos and technical specifications. The book is printed accordion-style with white leatherette boards that close with a gentle snap, and the back cover bears an affixed commissioned limited edition enamel Apple logo from circa 1977.

A limited edition miniature hardcover book on the history of the iPhone, numbered 5/8, 24 pages, 1.5″ x 1.75″, published in 2021 by the Cider Press. Bound with white leatherette, the book shows the evolution of the iPhone from the first-generation iPhone (announced by then-Apple CEO Steve Jobs on January 9, 2007) to the iPhone 12. A small replica iPhone is affixed to the front cover.

A limited edition one-of-a-kind iPhone tie tack, 1″ x .5″, made as a sample by International Datawares. In overall fine condition. Accompanied by a Cider Press flash drive containing the original videos of Apple’s Lisa commercials, as well as by a provenance letter from Kenneth Silverman, a former Silicon Valley engineer and a founding member of the first Apple User Group—The San Francisco Apple Core.
