At a flea market in Romania, one stall-holder thought he'd made a fair amount of money when he sold “an old typewriter” for 100 euros. But the buyer was getting a bargain! He just sold the early Enigma cipher machine at auction.
A German-made Enigma I machine sold for 100 euros at a flea market in Romania has been sold a second time for 45,000 euros. The breaking of the Enigma codes helped the Allies defeat Nazi Germany in WWII.
World music meets New Age and dance beats. It's Enigma's first album in eight years. The Enigma project was founded by Romanian-German producer Michael Cretu, and has sold a total of more than 70-million records.
