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.

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:

Germany (Hessen)-Officer's Infantry Pickelhaube

Model 1915, First Pattern. Measuring 195 mm x 225 mm x 230 in height, this Pickelhaube is produced from polished black leather, with light crazing on both the front visor and neck guard. The leather on the dome remains smooth to the touch and the exterior stitching is good. It has silvered brass fittings, which includes the spike (with two ventilation holes), spike mounting base (with four pins), rear spine (with two bolts), front visor trim and zinc chin strap (with sliding lock). With the cockade of Imperial Germany on the right (showing discoloration) and the cockade of Hessen on the left, both with original pins, they connect the zinc chin strap, which is supported by a second crazed hard leather chin strap. The helmet plate features a pewter sword-wielding Hessen lion enveloped by a leafed wreath. It has been repaired in the area around the right cockade, with glue residue visible in the recessed area and along the top of the visor, all the way to the other side. The accompanying visor trim has been dented and is loose fitting versus the leather visor. The soft leather liner remains supple, each of the nine flaps with their drawstring holes intact, as well as the stitching in the leather where the two ends meet at the rear. It exhibits normal edge wear, especially below the cockades and is minus the drawstring. The underside of the leather has a brushed feel. The nuts and bolts holding the spike in place are original but have been altered. Although it displays repairs, it remains in good very fine condition.
