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 Dutch National Youth Storm (Nationale Jeugdstorm = NJS) Membership Stickpin

Footnote: The National Youth Storm (Nationale Jeugdstorm = NJS) was a Dutch youth movement which existed from 1934 to 1945, organized along the lines of the German Hitler Youth and the Nazi equivalent of the Boy Scouts. The organization was formally separate from, but in practice had very close ties with the Dutch National Socialist Movement (NSB). The leader (Head Stormer) of the NSB was Cornelis van Geelkerken. On May 1, 1934, Geelkerken was dismissed as a civil servant, as NSB membership was considered incompatible with employment in government. On the same day, he founded the Youth Storm. Less than two years later, on February 1, 1936, the association was ruled "illegal" by the Supreme Court and subsequently abolished. It was re-established under a "democratic" structure and given a small name change (Association National Youth Storm, VNJ). However, very shortly after the German invasion, the old name was adopted again. Almost all members of the Youth Storm were children of NSB members. Prior to the occupation, the Youth Storm had about 2,000 members, a number which increased during the Second World War to more than 12,000.
