I recall somebody bringing one into the pawn shop featured on the show Pawn Stars, not sure what they offered the guy for it. Wasn't cheap, as I recall.

Like certain Ferraris and real estate, they aren't making any more of them.

Sounds like a great ROI for the middle man.

They offered $70K. The man selling wanted $149K. But, ole Ranger Will Willis stated only worth $70k as some of the parts did not have matching serial numbers.

I'd love to have an Enigma machine, it would go nicely with my Little Orphan Annie decoder pin.

Drink More Ovaltine!
