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

WWII Daimon Focus Field Lamp

Black metal casing, battery-operated, emboss stamped DAIMON with corporate logo and TELKO TRIO on the front, with dome light shielded by a flip-up lid, two sliding steel knobs on the exterior to change to red or green filters when necessary, smooth leather flaps on the back for hanging from a tunic and coat button, bottom flap folds up for easier storage, 68 mm x 122 mm x 58 mm, quality-made German craftsmanship, all parts original, mint condition. Comes in original three-colour cardboard box of issue, stamped "2213 AV B bl" on top lid, very fine. Footnote: In the 1930s and 1940s, the towns and roads were not as well lit as today, with the inhabitants often immersed in total darkness. Field lamps (torches) designed and issued to the troops were usually fitted with two or three Perspex filters for signalling in red, blue and green, as well as a quick-release button for signalling in Morse code. Some specimens, including the one offered here, had a lid to protect the light down onto the ground, to avoid being seen by the enemy. All of them were fitted with leather flaps for hanging on a tunic and coat button.
