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

Awards to Lt.H.Moore - Military Cross Recipient

British War and Victory Medals (LIEUT. H. MOORE). Naming is officially impressed. Very crisp detail, extremely fine. Accompanied by original named medal cartons (flat) and copies of entries in Gallantry Awards, Army Officers Lists and London Gazette. Footnote: T./2nd Lieutenant Henry Moore was a junior officer serving with a 'Kitchener' Battalion of the Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire Regiment, the Sherwood Foresters. He not only received his WWI pair but was also a recipient of the Military Cross (not included with this pair), awarded for his actions at the Battle of Arras (Vimy Ridge, British). "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He led his platoon to its obejective with the greatest disregard for danger, and having reached it, held on with only two men and repulsed a counter-attack. Although wounded he remained at his post for three days, holding an important tactical point, and by his efforts ensuring the successful consolidation of that part of the line. He has continually volunteered for any dangerous work, thereby obtaining a great hold upon his men." (London Gazette, 8377, 16 August 1917). Of the fifty men making up the platoon, only three survived to reach the objective and beat off the German counter-attack. (BGR266)
