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.

Accompanied by copies of his Attestation Paper, Medical Records, Casulty Form, Discharge Certificate, Will, Death Certificate and other research papers. Footnote: Silius Jensen was born on June 3, 1884 in Lemwig, Denmark. He emigrated to Canada and farmed in the Wanekville, Alberta area. When war was declared, he immediately enlisted into the CEF at Edmonton, Alberta, on August 19, 1914. He was transferred and signed his Attestation Paper on September 16, 1914 at Valcartier, Quebec and stated his trade as Labourer. As a member of the 9th Battalion CEF, he sailed for England on October 3, 1914. The following spring, on April 26, 1915, he was transferred to 2nd Battalion 1st Infantry Brigade, 1st Canadian Division, who served in the thick of the fighting at Ypres, Festuburt, Givenchy, Plustrout, Messines and Hill 60. On June 12, 1916 in the Ypres, Private Jensen was struck by a bullet in the right arm causing a serious wound. He was treated at the 10th CCS and No. 2 Canadian Hospital before being evacuated to the hospital ship Cambria, then to the 1st Scottish Hospital in Aberdeen. Upon recovery, he was found fit and returned to the field with the 2nd Battalion on October 16, 1916. Private Jensen was granted permission to marry Catherine Sarah Harlow of Stainport, Doncaster, Yorkshire on November 12, 1917. He returned to England in February 1919 and was repatriated to Canada in June 1919. He was deemed "medically unfit for further service" and was discharged on July 2, 1919. He and his new wife returned to Alberta to farm in the Edmonton area. He died December 29, 1971 at the age of 87.
