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, RAD. A Hewer for Enlisted Ranks and NCOs, by Carl Eickhorn

(Reichsarbeitsdienst Hauer für Mannschaften und Unterführer). A very well-preserved Reichsarbeitsdienst (Reich Labour Service/RAD) hewer for Enlisted ranks and NCOs, measuring 39.5 cm in total length when inserted into the scabbard. It features a 24.5 cm-long, nickel-plated, magnetic steel blade with a gentle curvature culminating in a sharpened tip and lower edge, and with narrow fullers set into the top edge of both sides. The obverse of the blade bears an acid-etched inscription of “ARBEIT ADELT” (“LABOUR ENNOBLES”), while the reverse ricasso bears a maker’s mark of “ORIGINAL EICKHORN, SOLINGEN”, circumscribing the firm’s classic logo of a squirrel clutching a sword. The blade sits securely within a one-piece, nickel-plated, magnetic metal hilt with a hooked quillon and pommel. Two pieces of polished and lacquered staghorn compose the handle grip, and are secured in place with dual magnetic metal rivets. It is accompanied by its original scabbard, constructed of a black-painted magnetic metal shaft, with additional metal fixtures riveted to the tip and throat. The tip displays double-sided engraved RAD insignia, while the throat fixture bears ribbed knotted patterns. Emanating from the throat is a loop for the accommodation of a hanger. Minor issues consistent with age and wear are evident, and include moderate tarnishing to the blade, some loss of finish to the nickel-plated features, and minor scratching of the scabbard paint. The hewer remains in a near extremely fine condition.
