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:

Twenty percent (20%) of the Hammer Price

Unique and Rare Zeppelin Compass

This finely crafted compass is a unique item, and has not been seen before here at eMedals. Weighing 208 grams, and carefully manufactured by CARL BAMBERG FRIEDENAU, this compass was designed for handheld use in zeppelins. It features a steel shell, with a stem and loop suspension. Numbered "No 8502" on the face plate, it comes with two gradated scales, each running around its circumference: Its blue needle is stamped with an "N" (Norden) at on one end and sits upon a brass centre piece embedded in the core. The reverse is marked with an "M.", with an Imperial crown above and is numbered "226" below. The glass is free of contact marks. It comes in a black hardshelled case, pebble finished, with an embossed crown, "M" and "226" on the lid, noted by the fact that the "6" has been stamped over an established "5". It has a green velvet-lined recessed medal bed, complemented by a nice design on the latch and is hinged. Although it requires a service, both compass and case are in extremely fine condition. A rare item.
