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.

Six First War Downed Aircraft Photographs

Both are black and white, on a standard photographic paper, with a gloss finish. First photo illustrating the German Luftschiff [airship] Zeppelin (LZ87) emerging from an aerodrome, with multiple figures towing it below, inscribed in handwritten blue ink "1st Zep shot down over England - from Spich Germany / 7 Sqd. Army of Occupation Airdrome" on the reverse, 86 mm x 145 mm, light soiling overall and edge creasing. Second photo illustrating the same aerodrome, with its doors partially open, inscribed "Rauchen verboten" (No Smoking) on the walls on either side of the doors, unmarked on the reverse, 96 mm x 118 mm. Both are slightly curled, very fine and extremely fine, respectively.

Footnote: The first flight of the German P Class Luftschiff Zeppelin (LZ87) took place on December 6, 1915. During its existence, it participated in two attacks on Ramsgate and Margate, dropping a total 3,000 kg (6,600 lb) of bombs. In July 1916, it was handed over to the German Navy, where it performed sixteen reconnaissance missions around the Baltic Sea. It was later used as a school ship and was decommissioned in July 1917.
