An Original Enigma Machine for sale on ebay

By Gary R, in , posted: 20-Jul-2007 13:38

I would love to add this marvel to my collection of old and interesting computer bits but at a current bid of USD28,000 it is a little outside my price range.

The auction runs for another 7 days.

[Edit] There really was one on ebay but the auction just disappeared[/Edit]

If you don't know what an Enigma machine is there is a great write up over at Wikipedia

For now I will have to stick with the online Enigma software emulator

I was reading a few weeks ago that they are also opening a computing museum at Bletchley Park and have a fully restored Mk2 colossus on display. Somewhere else to definately visit when I'm next in the UK!

How weird and that is an enigma, the auction is gone, gone, gone.
