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.

Buyer's Premium

All bids are subject to a Buyer's Premium which is in addition to the placed successful bid. The following rate of Buyer's Premium will be added to the Hammer Price of each Lot that you purchase:

Footnote: Karl Zimmermann was born on June 27, 1901. He was awarded the Dr. Fritz Todt Prize for his 27 years of work for the Bergbau-A.G. (mining company) Lothringen. At the time of the award, Zimmermann worked as a Vermessungssteiger, a surveying mining foreman. He is described as an extraordinarily hardworking and judicious worker who, during the difficult years of war, has fulfilled his duties without consideration for his own personal needs or his health. Even though he was plagued by a severe illness and had to deal with a chronic staff shortage due to his workers being drafted into military service, Zimmermann managed to develop a new level in his shaft mine almost on his own.
