Look, if I ever found an Enigma machine in a yard sale…

…masquerading as an ‘antique typewriter’ I’d obviously buy it on the spot.  At 100 euros it’d be a steal.  But there wouldn’t be a chance in Hell that I’d resell it.  At best I’d go find a local museum to donate it to, complete with a nice little plaque that casually mentioned what a fine fellow I was to give them such a valuable historical artifact.

Mind you, at 45,000 euros an Enigma machine is still a steal.  Well, except for the lack of documentation, which is probably why it sold for so little.  Which would be another powerful argument for giving it to a museum.
