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.

A 1937 First War Memorial Plaque to Machine Gun Platoon Leader

A plaque, measuring 230x135mm, wood with silvered zinc, very fine condition with the silver wearing thin in places and two cracks on the front part of the machine gun handle. The piece has been attached to the wooden plate by means of two screws. There is also a hanger on the reverse. It shows five soldiers, two of which carry a machine gun. It is most likely a First War scene. It is dedicated to the Korporal (platoon leader) by his 3rd platoon as a Christmas present in 1937. The reverse carries a stamp, but the unit’s name is indecipherable due to damage of the paper. There is also a poem about a person going to bed after a day of work. This doesn’t seem connected to the gift, unless it symbolizes the corporal’s death, making the plaque less of a Christmas present, but an item made to honour and remember him instead.
