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:

Campaign Medal 1849

Campaign Medal 1849 - Bronze, very crisp detail, 31.2 mm, integral suspension with original ribbon, light contact, near extremely fine. Footnote: This medal was instituted by Grand Duke Leopold on August 9, 1849 and awarded to "all those who participated reproachlessly in the recent 1849 campaign against the insurgents". Baden, though increasingly prosperous, was not immune to the revolutionary fervour that swept Europe in 1848-1849. Armed insurrection broke out in both years, made more serious by the sympathy of much of the army to the insurgent cause. Matters came to a head in May and June of 1849, the Grand Duke and his government being obliged to flee the capital, Karlsruhe. At this point, Leopold requested the intervention of Prussia whose forces routed the rebels at Waghausel on June 20th. Leopold returned to Karlsruhe on August 10th and Prussian forces remained in Baden until order had been restored.
