In 2007, Karen Green received a brand new iPhone as a present, but she never opened it.

Years later, she decided to sell it and contacted LCG Auctions, a luxury goods auction house.

The phone, which was still in its original packaging, received bids from 27 people.

The auction ended on February 2, and the winning bid was $63,356.40

The first-generation iPhone was released in June 2007 and sold for $599.

The 2007 iPhone had 4GB or 8GB of storage, a 2-megapixel camera, and a 3.5-inch screen.

Karen Green said she kept the phone unopened because she didn't want to let go of her other phone.

The sealed iPhone was valued at $5,000 in 2019 because of its condition and storage capacity.

The sealed iPhone became a collector's item and sold for over 100 times its original price.

The iPhone revolutionized the mobile phone industry and marked the beginning of Apple's dominance in the market.
