Only three of the many encrypted postcards I have covered on this blog so far have remained unsolved. The one I am going to introduce today might be number four.
US artist Andy Bauch hid messages in his Lego artworks. Blog reader Christian Baumann has now solved two of the codes.
In 1934, a US magazine published an encrypted message a reader had found in an old document. The solution is not known to me.
Two postcards from the early 20th century are written in Morse code or something similar. One of these cryptograms is still unsolved.
A Facebook user has posted a number of scans of a 19th century pocket lexicon with about 80 pages of code in it. Can a reader solve it?
The Museum für Kommunikation in Frankfurt owns a cipher tool from the 19th century. Not much is known about it. Can a reader find out more?
US artist Andy Bauch has created Lego mosaics that encode money in BitCoins and other crypto-currencies. Can a reader break his codes?
A medal that is depicted in a Freemason document from 1952 bears two encrypted inscriptions. Can a reader decipher them?
English actress Diana Dors left behind an encrypted message. This cryptogram allegedly leads to two million pounds.
The Playfair cipher is an encryption method from the 19th century. Some say that a Playfair-encrypted message of 50 or less letters is still secure today, if the method is used properly. Let’s put this claim to the test.
