    Enigma cipher machine on sale NOW on ebay


    ebay has been used to sell some remarkable items but, amazingly, there's a live auction right now for a German WWII Enigma cipher machine. With under three hours left to go, bidding stands at EUR 40,150. That's about about £28,000 or a little over US$48,500.

    I'd love to have one of these... wish I had the cash!

    I have to say if it is real and had NO work done on it the price seems fair - after a little Googling the price on this sort of thing is about 20,000$ if it has had work done on it
