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.

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:

Japan, Empire. An Order of the Sacred Treasure, VI Class

(Zuiho_sho). Instituted in 1888. Multi-piece construction, silver gilt with white and blue enamels, along with sixteen red glass cabochons, measuring 37.8 mm (w) x 42.7 mm (h) inclusive its laterally-pierced ball suspension, crazing evident in the white enamels on the arms at 6 and 9 o'clock, on its original triangular ribbon with hook and eye, near extremely fine. In its hardshelled case of issue, the case with a balsa wood frame, black lacquer finish, the lid altered by buffing the surface, thereby deleting the name and class of the order, and replacing them with the hand-painted image of a dragon in the clouds, inside lid and medal bed in violet velvet, small hole appearing on the lid near the dragon's chest and thereby exposing the underlying wood frame, case better than very fine.

 

Footnote: The Order of the Sacred Treasure is a Japanese order, established on January 4, 1888 by Emperor Meiji as the Order of Meiji. Originally awarded in eight classes (from 8th to 1st, in ascending order of importance), since 2003 it has been awarded in six classes, the lowest two medals being abolished that year. The most widely conferred Japanese order, it is awarded to those who have made distinguished achievements in research fields, business industries, healthcare, social work, state/local government fields or the improvement of life for handicapped/impaired persons. Originally a male-only decoration, the order has been made available to women since 1919. It is awarded for both civil and military merit, though of a lesser degree than that required for the conferment of the Order of the Rising Sun. Unlike most of its European counterparts, the order may be conferred posthumously.
