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 Luftwaffe Honour Document from Banak Airfield, Occupied Norway

A certificate awarding the honour name “Banake”, measuring 210x296mm, near mint condition with minor wrinkling. Banak is an airport in northern Norway which the German Luftwaffe used during the occupation of Norway. The document states that the “Chieftain of the Banaks”, the “German aviation people” closest to the north pole, is awarding the honourary name of “Banak” to Gefreiter (Lance Corporal) Wilhelm Peters for enduring the conditions of this most northerly outpost from September 1, 1942 to November 4, 1942. The document is dated to November 4, 1942 and signed in black ink by the “Chieftain of the Banaks”. Unfortunately, the name is indecipherable. It might be Harrhies or similar. It is safe to say that this award should not be taken too seriously, as it seems to have been intended as more of a moral booster for the troops than for any actual achievements.
