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:

Footnote: Karl Kreilbert was born on 14 February 1914 in Neudorf, Austria. He served in a number of units during the war, initially being assigned to Pionier-Bataillon 219, part of 183. Infanterie-Division. The division completed training through 1940, first in Münsingen, and later in Alsace-Lorraine. In January 1941, Keilbert was assigned to Pionier-Battalion 100, part of 100. Leichte Infanterie-Division, during which time he participated in Operation Barbarossa. In combat in the Soviet Union through 1942, Keilbert was wounded on 19 March and subsequently contracted Yellow Fever, remaining hospitalized until December.

He returned to active duty in March 1943, when the division, which had been annihilated at the Battle of Stalingrad, was reformed and deployed to Albania and Croatia to fight against Yugoslav Partisans. On 1 September 1944, Keilbert was transferred to Pionier-Battailon 190, assigned to 90. Panzergrenadier-Division, which was at that time deployed in northern Italy. The division surrendered to American forces on 2 May 1945. Interestingly, the Soldbuch does not contain records of Keilbert’s decorations, but he is presumed to have been a recipient of the Eastern Front Medal and Wound Badge.
