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.

A 1890 Ontario Rifle Association Shooting Medal

A 1890 Ontario Rifle Association Shooting Medal - Silver, 39 mm, obverse has an infantryman in firing position surrounded by a wreath and surmounted by a beaver, reverse inscribed "PRESENTED BY THE ONTARIO RIFLE ASSOCIATION" and "IN PACE PARATUS 1812-37-66", very crisp detail, high relief, raised rim, extremely fine. Footnote: The Ontario Rifle Association was formed in 1868 under the umbrella of the Dominion of Canada Rifle Association, to provide civilians with the opportunity to practice and improve their marksmanship, in support of the Defense of Canada. With a history of over 140 years, the Ontario Rifle Association today offers shooters many varied opportunities to shoot, catering to shooters of all levels, from beginner to world class marksmanship. Also, the dates on the medals reverse refer to the War of 1812 (1812), the Upper Canada Rebellion (1837) and the Fenian Raid (1866), prompting the formation of this Association.
