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.

A Wehrpass to the 4th Panzer Division; Battle of Kursk

A Wehrpass to the 4th Panzer Division; Battle of Kursk;  Army Group Centre, Wounded; 52 pages, in very fine condition.   Footnote: Kraus was a Sudeten born Panzer Grenadier and veteran of the Eastern Front. He was born January 22, 1924 in Schwarzenbach, in the region of Eger which was formerly part of Czechoslovakia. He was the graduate of a Bürgerschule, a sort of state institution that prepares students for trade and labour. He also made note that he could ride a bicycle. On February 12th, 1942 he was conscripted and brought in for inspection at the Military District Command in Karlsbad, where he was ruled for and placed with first reserves. Somewhat unusual for that time considering the state of the Wehrmacht war effort was the fact that he still had to complete his service with the RAD, something that was typically waived at that stage of the war. In any case his labour service passed without incident, and on October 19th 1942 he was assigned to the Budweis 302nd Reserve Infantry Battalion. He was trained with the type 98 Rifle and 34 Heavy Machine Gun, as well as in espionage and counter-intelligence. He was later assigned to the 12th Reserve Panzer Grenadier Battalion under the 4th Panzer Division and took part in major battles on the Eastern Front with Army Group Centre including the Battle of Kursk. On April 3rd 1943 he had to be treated for a case of typhus. On February 1st, 1945 he was promoted to the rank of Gefreiter.
