The original

The original Enigma I was allowed to disassemble was an M4, that means a four-rotor Enigma, that was used on U-boats during World War II. In comparison with other M4s this one was in good order. Some parts were  quite rusty, though. It did not work reliably any more, probably because the contacts in the rotors had corroded.
