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, SS. A SS Miniature Dagger Letter Opener

(SS Brieföffner). A unique SS letter opener, of multi-piece construction and in the form of a Model 1933 SS dagger. It consists of a magnetic metal blade with a sharpened tip, with marks and inscriptions etched into each side. One side bears a etched SS motto of “MEINE EHRE HEIßT TREUE” (“MY HONOUR IS LOYALTY”), while the other features a Reichszeugmeisterei (RZM) logo and maker’s code of “807/36” (a confirmed manufacturer of the full-size Model 1933 SS dagger), beneath double Sig runes. The blade sits within a silvered zink alloy handle, with both the upper and lower crossguards featuring eight notches. The obverse of the handle features a blackened Wehrmacht-style German national eagle clutching wreathed mobile swastika, as well as double Sig runes near the pommel. The handle itself only retains some of its original blackened finish. It measures 205 mm in total length, and in addition to the missing handle paint, some pitting and oxidation is evident throughout. It is in an overall very fine condition.
