It would be auctioned online by Charterfields Auctions, Hypebeast reports.

The letter was also reportedly drafted around the time Steve dropped out of school and stopped formal learning at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. The auction company said that the letter showcases the man’s experience with computers and calculators and his special skills in areas such as electronic tech or design engineering. 

Another important thing to note is that this would not be the first time the letter is being auctioned. In 2018, it sold for $175,000 (N66,683,750).
