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:

Three Rhodesian Air Force Insignia

Rhodesian Air Force (RhAF) Pilot Wings (red, white, green, yellow and purple embroidery, on a black wool base, padded, black mesh backer, 48 mm x 120 mm); Rhodesian Air Force (RhAF) Navigator (N) Wing (red, yellow and white embroidery, on a black wool base, padded, black mesh backer, 47 mm x 73 mm); and Royal Rhodesian Air Force (RRAF) Cap Badge (fire gilt bronze, 38 mm x 45 mm, both lugs intact). Extremely fine.

Footnote: The Rhodesian Air Force (RhAF) was an air force based in Salisbury (now Harare), which represented several entities under various names between 1935 and 1980. It originally served the British self-governing colony of Southern Rhodesia; becoming the air arm of the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland between 1953 and December 31, 1963; of Southern Rhodesia once again from January 1, 1964; and of the unrecognized nation of Rhodesia following its Unilateral Declaration of Independence from Britain on November 11, 1965. Named the Royal Rhodesian Air Force (RRAF) from 1954, the "Royal" prefix was dropped in 1970 when Rhodesia declared itself a republic, the official abbreviation changed appropriately. When the internationally recognized country of Zimbabwe came into being in 1980, the RhAF became the Air Force of Zimbabwe.
