Your entered maximum bid will not be disclosed to the seller or other auction participants at any point.

Max bidding example:

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.

J. N. Treadwell, R 13747’, extremely fine.  Footnote" John Nathan Treadwell was born in St. John, New Brunswick, on 6 April 1917. A District Representative for the General Motors Corporation at London, Ontario, he enlisted in the Canadian Fusiliers in January 1941, but transferred to the Royal Canadian Air Force after completion of his basic training that August. Having then qualified as an Observer, he was commissioned as a Pilot Officer and posted to No. 113 (Bomber Reconnaissance) Squadron (R.C.A.F.) at Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, in January 1943. A few weeks later, on 26 February, and having completed around a dozen patrols, his Hudson was seen to burst into flames and dive into the water of the Bay of Fundy - four days earlier the repair logs for the aircraft had noted a badly leaking engine primer. The son of James and Rose Treadwell, and the husband of Mary Treadwell, he was 25 years of age and has no known grave, being commemorated on the Ottawa Memorial; sold with copied service papers.
