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.

United States. The American Sword 1775-1945, Revised Edition, by Harold Leslie Peterson

This is a very well-preserved, revised edition of “The American Sword 1775-1945: A Survey of the Swords Worn by the Uniform Forces of the United States from the Revolution to the Close of World War II”, by Harold Leslie Peterson. It is constructed of a heavy card stock binding and retains its original paper stock dust jacket, with the exterior cover bearing an author and title circumscribing a seal of the United States. The interior content consists of 286 white paper pages featuring an in-depth history and study of edged weapons employed by the armed services of the United States from the beginning of the American Revolution until the end of the Second World War. It is followed by a 57-page supplemental book titled “American Silver Mounted Swords”, encompassing a short study of swords with silver hilts and fixtures. Both volumes are supplemented by an array of black-and-white photographs. It was published in 1980 by Ray Riling Arms Books Company. The book measures 160 mm (w) x 240 mm (h). Material fatigue and wear is evident to the dust jacket, but the book is in an overall better than very fine condition.
