Hi, guys (and gals)!

I have a Curta MK II for sale, from the Netherlands. It belonged to my (and my two brothers') dad who was always into cryptography, calculators and WWII.

It works perfectly/smoothly but it is only the device, no case or anything else. The clearing pin (as you can see in the photos) is present.

You can reach me at: m.edgar at gmail.com if you're interested.

Also, I have seen a lot of different pricings for a device like this all over the net, and ebay seems to have some crazy prices, so if some people could chime in with a very broad range of what this should go for in its condition, I would be much obliged!
