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.

53rd Sherbrooke Battalion of Infantry Officer's Helmet Plate, c. 1880

53rd Sherbrooke Battalion of Infantry Officer's Helmet Plate, c. 1880 - 104 mm x 130 mm, fine quality stamped brass, gilded in gold, in near mint condition. Will not find a better example. Footnote: The Sherbrooke Regiment was initially formed in 1866 as the Sherbrooke Battalion of Infantry, becoming the 53rd (Sherbrooke) Battalion in 1867. The Regiment provided volunteers for the 12th Battalion, Canadadian Expeditionary Force in 1914. The following year, it provided the bulk of the 117th (Eastern Townships) Battalion, CEF, formed initially as a mounted unit, but quickly converted to infantry. This Battalion became the first Empire unit to provide the King's Guard at Buckingham Palace in London. The 117th was then broken up to provide reinforcements for several other Canadian units in France.
