Very Rare WWII Enigma Cipher Machine. This highly important three-rotor Enigma deciphering machine was used by the Nazis during World War II. It is believed that acquisition of an Enigma, and the subsequent deciphering of the German codes by the Allies, shortened the war in Europe by at least two years. Examples of Enigma machines are exceptionally rare and almost all known models are in museums.
