Women's Cut.

"Edgar Allan Poe was fascinated by ciphers, going so far as to create a story, The Gold Bug, centered around the solution to one. Less well known is an article Poe wrote for Graham's Magazine in 1840 called "A Few Words on Secret Writing," offering a subscription to any reader who could send him cipher he could not crack. After six months, he claimed to have solved 100 entries and then published two additional ciphers, allegedly submitted by a Mr. W. B. Tyler, to conclude the contest. In 1985 Louis Renza of Dartmouth College proposed that Tyler was in fact Poe himself, an idea that gained further support from Shawn Rosenheim of Williams College."

This famous cryptogram remained unsolved until 2000.
