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.

Germany, HJ. A Pre-Regulation HJ Dress Bayonet, by Carl Wüsthof

(HJ Bajonett). A very well-preserved pre-regulation issue HJ dress bayonet, measuring 285 mm in length when inserted into the scabbard. It features a unique 145 mm-long magnetic metal blade with a sharpened tip and semi-sharpened edge, transitioning into a one-piece hilt. The obverse of the blade bears an acid-etched inscription of “BLUT UND EHRE!” (“BLOOD AND HONOUR!”), as well as a maker’s mark on the ricasso of “CARL WÜSTHOF, SOLINGEN”. The reverse of the blade bears an additional etched inscription of “GLADIATOR”. A hooked magnetic metal quillon provides a finger guard and flush grip. The handle grip itself is constructed of two of Wüsthof’s signature blackened and pebbled wood strips, secured together by dual magnetic metal rivets. A downward-hooked pommel completes the bayonet. It is accompanied by its period original scabbard, constructed of black-painted magnetic metal. The throat retains a functional spring clip, securely holding the bayonet in place during storage. Dual reverse magnetic metal rivets affix a period original black leather belt hanger, with the remnants of a magnetic metal snap button. While well-preserved, the bayonet demonstrates a number of issues consisting with age and use, including oxidation of the metal elements, loss of paint to the scabbard, and material fatigue of the leather belt hanger which has resulted in the loss of the stud to the snap button. It is in an overall very fine condition.
