The Enigma Machine...

Some asked me about the name of the clan. It's named after the famous cipher machine used by the Germans during WWII.

The value of an original enigma machine...

An Enigma machine which featured in a Hollywood movie about the codebreakers of World War II has smashed auction estimates and sold for a world record price.

The encoding device sparked a three-way bidding war when it went under the hammer at Christie's in London Thursday, selling for £133,250 ($208,137) -- more than double the upper estimate of £50,000.

Christie's said the previous record for an Enigma machine was £67,250, at the same auction house, in November 2010.

Even small original bits and pieces cost a small fortune...in fact, replica (spare) parts aren't much cheaper.
