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:

A Wehrpaß & Documents to the Landschutz Battalion 847 Bamberg

A Wehrpaß, measuring 107x147mm, extremely fine condition with minor scuffing, and two Gesundheitsbücher (health books), measuring 145x208mm, extremely fine condition with minor scuffing and folding crease.The Wehrpaß is originally dated to Nuremberg on June 1, 1937 and includes entries up to 1945.

Footnote: Valentin Reichling was born on September 24, 1898 in Nuremberg. He worked as a headwaiter before joining the Wehrmacht on December 8, 1939. Reichling could speak English. His only award was a Hindenburg Cross.

Reichling initially served in the Veterinary Company 188. Between March 1939 and May of 1940 he was stationed at the Reserve Military Hospital Nuremberg I, however it is unknown if he worked or recovered there.

Between May and August of 1940 he was part of the Fahr-Ersatz Abteilung 13 Genesenden-Schwadron (Driver Reserve Detachment 13 Convalescent Squadron). In August he was also promoted to Gefreiter (Lance Corporal), shortly before being discharged due to chronic inflammation of the bladder. Reichling was conscripted again on May 31, 1944. He was deemed partly suitable for service since he still had bladder problems and had developed poor teeth and gum health. He served in the Kraftfahrer Ersatz und Ausbildungs Abteilung 13 Deggendorf (Motorist Reserve and Training Detachment). On January 12, 1945 Reichling was redeployed to serve in the Landschutz (Homeland Protection) Battalion 847 Bamberg.
