Strange. I guess Ebay UK is defective.

Dwight was kind enough to forward a pointer to the picture. It looks
like a "Baudot" code machine (three rows, "figures" and "letters"
keys). The keyboard layout is German (or for another German-speaking
country where the QWERTZ layout is used). The labels are French and
German, which suggests it might be Swiss manufacture, but I can't make
out the manufacturer's name.

No way is this WW2 vintage, nor is it an Enigma. It's been too lnog
since I read Kahn, so I can't remember what other rotor machines
existed a couple of decades ago. Might it be an M209 clone?
