Price $

150

In April 1964 IBM announced their new computer called the 360 with a variety of model variations.  Hoopla included a variety of customer gifts including this rarely found IBM smoked glass ashtray with their new Star logo in center.  Smoking was prevalent in the 60s especially with programmers and operators.  The star logo was used only in the 360 series and dropped with the 370.  Anything with the IBM star logo is seldom found and highly collectible.  Not many of the glass items survived the IBM 360 gift announcements from half a decade ago.  It is 7.5 inches in diameter and in very good condition.  Collectors of computer memorabilia will find this the highlight to their collection.
