Cipher machines fished out of the Baltic Sea The author of this unusual discovery is professional diver Christian Hüttner, who in his account stressed that the machines were on the bottom clumped together in one pile. He reported his find to the State Archaeological Office, which investigated the matter.

I was underwater looking for a lost propeller when I came across a pile of discarded machinery. Upon initial assessment, it was clear that some of them had been rendered useless before someone decided to dump them in the water, Hüttner explained to local media

The excavated devices are to be restored in the Archaeological Museum’s conservation workshop and will then become part of the display in the planned exhibition of cipher machines.

Destroyed Enigma cipher machine fished out of the Baltic Sea Interestingly, in early December 2020, another copy of Enigma was found in roughly the same area, of which we reported in more detail on our portal.

According to the State Archaeological Office, approximately 100-200 thousand different models of the Enigma cipher machine were built during World War II.
