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.

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:

United Kingdom. A Royal Corps of Signals Brigadier's Forage Cap, c.1940

This fine quality cap has a 42 mm wide red wool band, with the body of the cap fabricated from a black wool, in the traditional flat top design with raised peak. There are four black metal eyelets, two on either side of the seam at the rear of the cap, on the underside of the overhang for ventilation. The front is adorned with a 25.5 mm (w) x 41.5 mm (h) Brigadier's Cap Badge, illustrating the lion standing upon the King's crown, the badge fabricated from gold-coloured and silvered bullion wire, with maroon felt in the void of the crown, touches of red embroidery for the two eyes and tongue of the lion, along with touches of red and green embroidery in the base of the crown, all on a 32 mm (w) x 48.4 mm (h) black wool base. The black patent leather visor has a black two-piece patent leather strap resting along the top edge, held in position via brass Royal Corps of Signals buttons on both sides, along with a raised 21.5 mm wide leafing on the brim in fine gold-coloured rolled bullion wire, interlaced with strands of rolled beaded bullion wire, giving definition to the leafing. The underside of the visor has a forest green synthetic finish, the visor itself very stiff. The 50 mm wide sweatband is fabricated from cinnamon brown leather, with a 30 mm wide mesh band of cinnamon brown rayon sewn in place along its edge. The dome is lined in cream-coloured synthetic fabric, with a manufacturer's stamp in gold-coloured ink inscribed "HAWKES & CO. LTD / 1, SAVILE ROW. W. / LATE / 14, PICCADILLY" in the dome, under a celluloid shield. The visor and strap exhibits very light crazing, the red wool band with scattered mothing, light soiling and wear present in the black wool on the flat top, with soiling present in the forest green synthetic finish on the underside of the visor and the cinnamon leather sweatband, extensive cracking and loss in the celluloid shield in the dome.
