What's a max bid?

Your maximum bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.

Your entered maximum bid will not be disclosed to the seller or other auction participants at any point.

Max bidding example:

If the current auction price is $100 dollars and you place a maximum bid of $120 dollars, the system will bid $101 dollars on your behalf.

If no other participant places a bid, you win that auction lot for $101 dollars.

If another auction participant places a bid of $110 dollars, the system will subsequently place a bid of $111 dollars on your behalf. The system will continue to bid in $1.00 dollar increments until your maximum bid of $120 dollars is exceeded.

If another auction participant places a bid for $125 dollars, the auction lot price will display $121 dollars having exceeded your previously submitted maximum bid by $1.00 dollar.

Buyer's Premium

All bids are subject to a Buyer's Premium which is in addition to the placed successful bid. The following rate of Buyer's Premium will be added to the Hammer Price of each Lot that you purchase:

A Fireman's Sawback Bayonet by Eickhorn

A Fireman's Sawback Bayonet - Measuring 350 mm, with the scabbard on, this dagger features a 197 mm nickel-plated steel blade, with an unsharpened edge on one side and a very sharp sawback edge on the other, remaining bright and crisp, having a dull tip. The blade's ricasso is maker marked Carl Eickhorn Solingen, with the company's squirrel emblem. It retains its crossgraining, light wear and exhibits pitting on both sides near the crossguard, in addition to faint scratches overall, common to extraction and return to the scabbard, and a natural shine, in extremely fine condition. The thick leather washer at the crossguard junction is painted black. The fittings in the handle and crossguard are nickel plated, with black synthetic grip plates retained by two nickel rivets, with scattered plating loss and contact marks evident on the crossguard and pommel. The black metal scabbard is straight and appears without dents, however, it has seen extensive wear, with much of the original paint either cracked or lost, in fine condition. Attached to the scabbard via the scabbard's frog stud is a beautifully supple, well-stitched black leather frog, accented by three rivets where it backs the scabbard's throat, with minor cracking and some discolouration. It comes with a silver bullion and hot pink threaded portepee, on a leather strap with inlayed aluminum wire, in the correct tie. All original, as found, better than very fine.
