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.

Germany, Heer. A Wehrpaß to Hermann Scheidel, KIA on the Eastern Front

(Heer Wehrpaß). A Wehrpaß named to Hermann Scheidel, constructed of a grey paper stock binding, with 52 interior pages, with a black-and-white photograph of the bearer, measuring 105 mm (w) x 145 mm (h), minor material fatigue evident, in overall near extremely fine condition. Footnote: Hermann Scheidel was born to a Lutheran family on 31 December 1916 near Lüneburg, Germany. His father was a farmer, and mother was a housewife. He was drafted into Wehrmacht service on 9 April 1936. He also performed compulsory Reich Labour Service (RAD) duties between 1 October 1936 and 24 March 1937. On 18 November 1938 he entered into active Wehrmacht service and was posted to Infanterie-Regiment 93, billeted in Stendal. Until 25 July 1943 he served with a variety of units, including Infanterie-Regiment 110, Schützen-Regiment 110, and Panzer-Grenadier Regiment 110. From 3 March to 18 April 1941 he participated in the Balkan Campaign in Yugoslavia, before being transferred to Occupied Poland on 9 June for Operation Barbarossa. From 22 June 1941 until 24 July 1943, Scheidel saw combat exclusively on the Eastern Front, being deployed to Belarus, Ukraine and Russia. He was a recipient of the War Merit Cross with Swords (16 May 1942), the Wound Badge, Black Grade (5 September 1941), and the Iron Cross, II Class (18 July 1943). Scheidel was wounded in combat with the Red Army on 24 July, and died the following day. He was buried in a Wehrmacht cemetery in Tomarowka (near present-day Belgorod, Russia).
