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.

A Second War Imperial Japanese Army Paratrooper Badge

A Second War Imperial Japanese Army Paratrooper Badge - Golden Kite Badge, Measuring 39 mm x 94 mm, this fine quality five-colour embroidered badge features crisp detail, intricate stitching, with touches of gold bullion on the bird's perch and both wings, on green felt. Featuring crisp colours, in near mint condition. Footnote: Insignia were rarely worn on the smock and occasionally even when on home service. The IJA parachute qualification "wings" badge, instituted in September 1941, was the Golden Kite (Kinshi Kunsho), the messenger of the gods which legend says hovered over the battlefield dazzling the Emperor Jimmu Tenno?s enemies with its golden wings. It was worn centered on the upper right sleeve. Excellent example.Rare.
