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.

Japan, Imperial. An Army Enlisted Man’s Tunic

This is a very well-preserved Imperial Japanese Army Enlisted Man’s service tunic, constructed of olive-drab cotton with a black cotton collar. The collar is flanked by tabs, constructed of black buckram-reinforced wool, each bearing a single silvered bronze rank pip and measuring 25 mm (w) x 40 mm (l). The cuff of each sleeve bears a machine-embroidered green tresse. Each breast flap has two pockets, with the upper pockets opening with a horizontal flap bearing a reinforced buttonhole meeting a gilded aluminum button, the latter with a stylized raised cherry blossom. The lower pockets open with a simple horizontal flap. The tunic is closed with five gilded aluminum buttons on the right flap meeting an equal number of reinforced buttonholes on the left flap. The reverse of the tunic has two horizontally-arranged cotton loops accommodating a black cotton belt, which comes complete with a functional gilded aluminum buckle, similarly bearing a stylized cherry blossom insignia. The interior presents plain, with the exception of an unmarked white cotton label at the upper breast area, as well as an integrated cotton suspension loop in the collar. The tunic is unmarked and measures approximately 415 mm across the shoulders, with an arm length of 505 mm and an overall body length of 650 mm. Some soiling and material fatigue is evident, in addition to some mothing of the collar, but the tunic is in an overall very fine condition.
