The wooden case and keyboard were after market extras, often added by the retailer selling the machine. It looks to me like this auction comes with everything that the original would have come with. A bargain at twice the price!

That's good news. Better they stay at Bletchley or in a museum than end up in private hands. Still, I wouldn't mind getting my paws on that Enigma.
