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:

London Gazette 21.10.1943 1470123 Sjt. G.F. Falconer Royal Artillery , the Recommendation (which was originally signed by Montgomery) states, 'On 19th July 1943 at Agira, Sgt. Falconer's Troop came under heavy mortar fire which killed several men including the Troop Commander, seriously wounded the two senior N.C.O.'s of the Troop and destroyed one gun. Sgt. Falconer immediately took command of the Troop and despite further heavy enemy fire got the other guns into action. He personally saw to the removal of the portees from the area and his initiative and personal courage set a first class example to the men under his command. By his prompt action he undoubtedly saved further lives and equipment. He remained in charge all day and later when ordered to remove his guns he borrowed carriers and successfully carried out the operation.'
