    EXTREMELY RARE, MINT, UNISSUED, Original WW2 1942 U.S. Army Signal Corps M-209-B Cipher Machine (Converter M-209) With Original Accessories. MISC 819 - MISC 819

    The M-209-B was the U.S. Army Signal Corps' primary cipher machine for encoding messages "in the field" during combat operations. It was used by the U.S. Army during WWII and the Korean War for such purposes and was considered to be "restricted" and subject to destruction if capture was imminent. Similar to the German's "Enigma" cipher machine, it is an important part of the Army's field gear during WWII. This is an original and unissued Condition M-209-B cipher machine or as the Army termed it "Converter M-209". The M-209-B Converter itself has its original Screwdriver (clipped inside top cover), Tweezers (clipped inside top cover), metal oil tube with screw top lid & integral applicator (clipped inside top cover), pre inked pads inside steel tube with screw top lid (clipped inside top cover) and original roll of paper tape (inset inside top cover). This item is just as it left the L. C. Smith & Corona Typewriter, Inc. factory in Syracuse, New York. The serial number is hand-stamped and reads "23741" and the Order Number is 12453-Phila.-42, placing it in a War Department order in the 1942 fiscal year (July 1, 1941 to June 30, 1942) (all information is contained on its steel identification plate riveted to the top cover of the instrument and is illustrated inset in image 2). The instrument’s steel case with original olive green paint has a steel press button release catch for the hinged lid . The body has fixed shoulder strap bars. With lid closed the unit measures 7”x5 ½”x 3 ½”. This is a great opportunity for the advanced collector to obtain a pristine example of this cipher machine for the collection of field gear or Signal Corps equipment. As with all of our stock this item is guaranteed 100% Genuine. Price includes UK delivery. MISC 819
