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:

Badge of the Croatian Legion WWII

Badge in die stamped aluminum, lacquered center, pin back. Unmarked, although made by Zagreb's makers "B. Knaus" and "ME-BA". Very fine condition. Worn on the right uniform pocket. This badge was awarded to all members of the Croatian legionary units (Navy, Army, Air Force). Most of these units were involved in the battles on the Eastern Front, in Russia, most notably 369.th (Kroat). Regiment. Commander of the Regiment was Colonel Markulj, a Croat. He was replaced by another Croat, Colonel Viktor Pavicic, as regimental Commander. Only a small number of the NCO's of the regiment were Germans, all other members were Croats. (Illustrated in D. Littlejohn's "Foreign Legion of The Third Reich", V.3, p.189).
