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:

Twenty percent (20%) of the Hammer Price

A German Imperial Battalion of Civil Workers (ZAB = Zivilarbeitersbataillon) Armband

Fabricated from yellow cotton, with "Z.A.B." in 65 mm deep letters screen-printed in black ink on the front, the ends of the armband sewn together at the rear, 118 mm x 210 mm, lightly soiled, near extremely fine.

Footnote: To ensure that the factories could keep running and because voluntary recruitment was insufficient (12,000 men in 1916), the occupying forces sent Belgians to Germany, or enlisted them in the Battalions of Civil Workers (Zivilarbeitersbatallionen = ZAB), to work in occupied France. Those deportees, considered as war prisoners, experienced very hard working and living conditions. More than two percent died in exile due to exhaustion and disease. Protests brought the deportations to a stop. A total of 60,000 Belgians were deported to Germany and 60,000 to the occupied part of France.
