ENIGMA CIPHER MACHINES FOR SALE:

RARE and UNUSUAL ORIGINAL WW-II GERMAN LUFTWAFFE 3-ROTOR ENIGMA CIPHER MACHINE:

This is a WW-2 German Enigma cipher machine that was among a small group of Enigmas that were delivered to the Luftwaffe. This Enigma is unusual because most Luftwaffe Enigmas were supplied in a metal case while this one was found in a wooden case that carries its serial number. The Enigma's serial number "1898" indicates that it was made before the beginning of the war. The machine is in good cosmetic and working condition and the rotors and reflector have been rebuilt using as many original parts as possible.
( $ Price Upon Request )


ORIGINAL LATE WW-II GERMAN ARMY 3-ROTOR ENIGMA CIPHER MACHINE:
This is a fine example of a WW-2 Army Enigma. Its serial number is 18,660 indicating that it was one of the last Enigmas made during the war. Since it was in very good condition at the end of the war it was used by the Bundes Nachrichten Dienst (The German Secret Service - BND) after the war and maintained by them. This machine is in good cosmetic and working condition and the rotors and reflector have been rebuilt using as many original parts as possible.
( $ Price Upon Request )


ORIGINAL Repaired WW-II GERMAN ARMY 3-ROTOR ENIGMA CIPHER MACHINE:
This is a complete and original WW-2 German Army Enigma cipher machine in good working condition. The serial number 6,204 indicates that it was made during the early years of the war. All three rotors, I, II, III are included and the additional two rotors, IV and V are also included. Each of the rotors has been rebuilt using as many original parts as possible. An exact replica of the wooden carrying case for the two additional rotors is available. The plugboard on the very front of the Enigma and the wooden case were damaged in a military action and have been repaired.

GENERAL AND TECHNICAL INTRODUCTION TO THE ENIGMA:

HISTORICAL NOTES: About 99% of all of the the German Enigmas were destroyed by the end of WW-II. About 50% of the Enigmas were destroyed in combat during the war. Another 30% were destroyed or thrown into lakes by the Germans as the Allies advanced across Germany. Another 20% were destroyed by the allied forces who were ordered to destroy all German Enigma Machines at the end of WW-II. Therefore They are exceptionally hard to find and they are usually in poor condition.

ENIGMA MUSEUM ENIGMAS FOR SALE: The http://EnigmaMuseum.com also linked to: the http://w1tp.com/enigma Enigma Museum has been hunting for, recovering, researching, restoring and displaying Enigmas to working condition for over 25 years. When an Enigma is no longer needed in the colletion or in the museum, it will be listed for sale in this website so you may want to check back every few months or enquire about any newly listed Enigmas.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT OUR ENIGMAS:
Original German Enigmas like this one are extremely rare and hard to find because about 99% of the Enigmas were destroyed during the war or when Churchill ordered the Allied forces to destroy all Enigmas at the end of the war. As the pivotal role that the Enigma played in world history becomes better known, the prices paid in the few open auction sales of Enigmas have risen dramatically.
These auction sales have been for Enigma machines in as-is condition with parts missing and unknown restorability. EnigmaMuseum.com aka the w1tp.com/enigma museum uniquely offers Enigmas in complete and working condition with batteries installed. Because the Germans used brass-on-brass contacts rather than gold, silver or platinum, absolutely perfect operation on every keypress in these 60 year old machines cannot be expected.




OTHER CIPHER MACHINES FOR SALE:


RUSSIAN COLD WAR ERA M-125-3MN "FIALKA" CIPHER MACHINE: $ {Price Upon Request}

This very rare Russian M-125 FIALKA Cipher Machine is patterned after the original German Enigma but it is much more complex and secure. It has 10 internally adjustable counter-rotating rotors, a 5-level paper tape reader, punch, and an inking printer. It accepts programming information through a card reader on the left side. It uses a separate 24v power supply that is included. These Russian cipher machines remained top secret until very recently. They are still being used. The following photos are of a FIALKA that is very similar to the one being offered.

Other menu items will allow viewing of its manual (In German) and viewing the simpler model M-125-MN Fialka.


Russian Clandestine Pocket-Sized Non-Electronic Burst Encoder/Keyer: $ {Price Upon Request}

This is a very small and interesting burst encoder set which can easily be concealed in a pocket. It is used to write coded signals from a telephone- type dial input onto a stainless steel tape in a cassette. The tape cassette can be removed from the Encoder and mounted on a transmitting unit where the tape is run at a very high speed producing a burst of encoded data that keys a radio transmitter and broadcasts a very short transmission containing the entire coded message. These extremely short and fast messages are difficult for an enemy to receive since they are only on the air for a very short time. The short duration of the message burst also makes it difficult for the enemy to use direction finding radios to pinpoint the location of the transmitter. These photographs show a burst encoder that is very similar to the one being offered.

The coding unit (with the dial) writes the magnetic pulses onto the tape by direct magnetic induction without the use of any electronic circuitry. Each dialed-in character rotates a series of permanent magnets past the tape. This writes the pulses onto the tape and at the end of the dial's rotation, it advances the tape. This makes the pocket encoder independent of any power sources and completely portable.

***SOLD BUT Another one expected***Original U.S. Army WW-2 M-209B Cipher Machine: {Price Upon Request when available.}

This is the M-209B Cipher Machine that was used by the American Military throughout WW-2. Many historians believe that it was never successfully deciphered by an enemy. It is a small, easily concealed device with which plaintext is entered by a wheel on the left and corresponding ciphertext is printed on a roll of paper tape for transmission or delivery to a destination. This machine is in good used condition. The expected machine is similar to but not the same as that shown in the photos.

Original 1948 Swiss Enigma Cipher Machine "NEMA": ${Price Upon Request}

After the end of WW-2, The Swiss produced a number of NEMA Cipher Machines which were essentially modernized copies of the WW-2 German Enigma. The machines use the same encoding strategy but have an additional feature in the form of a remote light panel that allows the deciphered message to be read by an officer without the person typing in the ciphertext being able to see it.
These machines were put into storage and used for training to be prepared in the event of war. This machine is in excellent physical and operating condition considering its age with a very nice interior and some paint chips on the outside of the case. It comes with accessories that include the remote light panel, the connecting cable, a power cable to allow operation on voltages from 4 to 240 volts and power adapters to allow connection to light sockets. A complete set of spare light bulbs is contained in the cover and a wire brush that is used for cleaning the rotor contacts is also included. An original NEMA instruction manual is also included. The NEMA that is expected is similar to the ones shown in these photographs.

ORIGINAL ENIGMA ROTORS, REFLECTORS, CASES, AND PARTS:


EXCEPTIONALLY RARE ITEMS:

MATCHED SET OF TOTALLY UNMARKED LATE WW-2 ENIGMA ROTORS: (Price upon request.)

It is very unusual to find Enigma rotors that have absolutely no markings on them. Enigma rotors were given numbers to match a specific Enigma. This set of rotors IV and V was never numbered. It is the only such set known to exist.

VERY RARE ADJUSTABLE "D" REFLECTOR FOR WW-2 ENIGMAS:
(Price upon Request)

As the war progressed, the Germans worried about the possibility that the Allies might be able to decipher their Enigma-coded messages. Since all of the Enigmas had reflectors with fixed internal wiring that could not be changed they designed a reflector with wires that could be unplugged from one connection and plugged into another. Luckily for the Allies, very few of these "D" reflectors were put into service. This is one of the rarest of the Enigma variations.
