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.

Buyer's Premium

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:

Photos, Generaloberst H. ”Papa” Hoth

Collection of 58 original photos, variety of sizes (6 large 18x13cm; smallest ones 6x8cm), approximately 20 photos with hand written notes, dates (presumably by H. Hoth); mostly of military related nature, and mostly taken on Russian Front; some excellent photos! In very fine condition. Footnote: Hermann "Papa" Hoth (12 April 1885 - 25 January 1971) was an Officer in the German Army from 1903 to 1945. He attained the rank of Generaloberst during WWII. He fought in France, but is most noted for his later exploits as a panzer commander on the Eastern Front. H. Hoth commanded the 4th Panzer Army during Operation Barbarossa in 1941, and later during the Wehrmacht?s 1942 summer offensive. Following the encirclement of the 6th Army in Stalingrad in November 1942, Hoth commanded the panzer army during Operation Wintergewitter. After Stalingrad, Hoth was involved in the Kursk counter offensive in the summer of 1943 and the Battle of Kiev. The Fourth Panzer Army under his command at Kursk was the largest tank formation ever assembled. Hoth was dismissed from command by Adolf Hitler in 1943, only to be reinstated for a short time during the last weeks of the war. After the war, he served six years in prison for war crimes, and became a writer on military history.
