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.

A German Imperial Army Zeppelin (Luftschiff) Veteran's Case

A German Imperial Army Zeppelin (Luftschiff) Veteran's Case - Silver, hallmarked with the Reichsmark crescent moon and crown mark, marked "800" (silver) and maker marked "G.R." on the latch, vertical rules and textured designs on the front and back covers, the front cover with the initials "G" and "R" in stacked diamond motifs in the upper left corner, a Winged Prop insignia in the centre and a miniature Army Zeppelin (Luftschiff) Badge in the lower right corner, hinged, with a push latch on the opposite side, opening to expose storage areas on either side for cigarettes, inside tinted in a gold coloured wash, right side with a weakened restraining elastic, the elastic exhibiting repair on the right side, 83.3 mm x 108.5 mm x 10.5 mm, light contact, extremely fine.     Footnote: The Army Zeppelin (Luftschiff) Badge was established in 1920, with each recipient having to purchase his own badge. In 1884, a law was enacted making .800 the minimum national standard for silver in Germany. In 1886, the use of individual city marks was abolished and replaced by the national mark (Reichsmark) of a crescent moon and crown mark (Halbmond und Krone) representing the entire German state. These marks became compulsory by 1888. The crown and crescent moon are used in conjunction with a maker's mark and a decimal silver standard mark.
