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.

WWII China Burma India Theater Insignia

WWII China Burma India Theater Insignia - China Burma India Theater Shoulder Sleeve Insignia Patch (silver bullion wire with fields of navy blue and red wool on the shield's base, white cotton backer, 55 mm x 75 mm); and Chinese Air Force Pilot Wings (gold and silver bullion wire on khaki wool, blue and white enamelled Nationalist Chinese insignia sewn in the centre, black cotton backer, 26 mm x 76 mm). Both are original, period items, very crisp detail, quality stitching, uniform worn, near extremely fine.  Footnote: The United States Armed Forces, China Burma India Theater was established on March 4, 1942, to control American forces on the Asian mainland. The goal of the force was to assist American allies, particularly China, in containing Japanese expansion westward. The China Burma India Theater did not contain large numbers of American combat troops, but posed logistical problems beyond any previously faced by the U.S. Army. From India to the interior of mainland China thousands of American soldiers ran railroads, built roads, provided medical care, flew cargo planes, trained Chinese troops, etc. The shoulder sleeve insignia of the China Burma India Theater was approved November 13, 1944, but had seen unofficial use since 1942.
