Maybe an Enigma could end up in the trash.

There are amazing thing that end up in the trash by accident, Between 1977
and 1983 when I worked at McDonnell-Douglas a cruise missile case ended up
at a high school shop class, they received the leftover wood crates. It was
locked and nobody was sure if there was a missile inside. Of course the
cases and the missiles were serial numbered. The company hadn't reported
any missing and all were accounted for. Of course nobody actually visually
counted them. Everybody believed it was a hoax until the school brought the
case to the plant and then heads rolled. Actually only an empty case. I've
heard that small military items, weapons, occasionally disappear because
they are never visually counted only accounted for in the computer.

Never blame a human blame it on the computer.
