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.

An Auxuliary Polizei NCO's Shako

An Auxuliary Polizei NCO's Shako - This sturdy-framed shako has a black leather exterior, with a circular top, straight front and domed back with protruding neck guard, in the traditional police helmet style, that was established in 1920s and lasted until 1945. The front is adorned with an aluminum Third Reich Police shako plate, illustrating a spread-winged eagle sitting upon an oak leaf clustered wreath centred by a swastika insignia. Immediately above the shako plate is an oval aluminum cockade, with a painted red centre surrounded by rows of white and black paint, attached to the helmet via a u-shaped prong on the back of the cockade and slid behind the shako plate. The cockade is maker marked "F.A. ASSMANN & SOHNE LUDENSCHEID" on the plate on the reverse. There are two circular screened vents on either side near the top, to allow for proper ventilation. The post loops and the two buckles on the 17 mm wide leather chin strap are fabricated from aluminum, designating it as an enlisted man's helmet. Metal posts on either side hold the chin strap in place, resting upon the top of the visor. It also comes with a reinforcing, heaving stitched 19 mm wide patterned leather strap sewn in place along the lower portion of the shako, around the circumference, covering the seams where it meets the visor and the neck guard. The underside of the visor and neck guard are synthetic and finished in green. The inside comes complete with its original nine-panel leather liner, perforated along the front edge with five tiny rows of forty ventilation holes each, plus a shoelace replacing the original drawstring that has been lost to time. The dome is maker marked "H. BECKER & Co G.M.B.H. BERLIN 0.27". It measures 180 mm x 267 mm x 150 mm in height, exhibiting contact marks and light wear overall, slight crazing on the visor, most of the stitching at the base of the top circular plate where it meets the body of the shako has come away and the leather liner has stiffened but has not become brittle. All other parts and stitching remain intact, very fine.
