Enigma-like Device Patent Granted - 67 Years Later

Thanks to Bruce Schneier[?] of Counterpane fame for sending in
this tidbit. The US Patent Office has granted William Friedman
a patent for an Engima-like device - the catch is that he filed
in 1933. Still it's a cool vintage piece of crypto - and I also
noticed that a gallery copy of Bruce's new book is on eBay.

'Course, you could wait just a few weeks and buy a new one, but
hey - if you gotta have it now, you gotta have it.
