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.

A Rare Three Quarter Ring Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross 1939

The so called "Three-Quarter Ring" Knight's Cross; non magnetic, with silver frame (marked "800" on reverse); measures 48.40x52.30mm, weighs 30.1 grams. Silver loop measures 19.5mm in length, marked 800. Slightly worn, extremely fine condition; with length of neck ribbon. This type of Knight's Cross is thoroughly described by D. Maerz in his book "The Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross", and this example matches precisely the examples and features of the Cross he describes (p. 208-219); except, he states the examples known to him are unmarked, and that the frame is made of "Neusilber" - not "solid" silver. This frame is undoubtedly silver, and stamp was punched before two sides were joint, as there is no indentations on the obverse whatsoever. This type of the cross was issued very early and probably less then few hundreds were awarded, making this version the rarest of all Knight's Crosses.
