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.

WWI War Munition Volunteer Badge, 1916-1918

WWI War Munition Volunteer Badge, 1916-1918 - Brass, maker marked "J.R. GAUNT & SON Ltd" and marked "WARRANTED FIRE GILT" on the reverse, numbered "20577" on the buttonhole attachment, very crisp detail, 31.5 mm x 44.5 mm, light contact, near extremely fine.  Footnote: This badge was issued by the Ministry of Munitions (MoM), to identify persons considered necessary for war work. The badge also identified the wearer as being exempt from call-up to active service. All war worker badges were tightly regulated and controlled with each one individually numbered and issued with a personal certificate. War worker badges were requested by companies from the MoM and in turn would present the badge to their individual employees. This War Munition Volunteer badge was in use from 1916 and intended for skilled men not already allocated to other "vital" war work. After the war ended there was no apparent attempt to call in the war service badges.
