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:

Canada General Service to Lt. H. Givins, R.C.R.

Canada General Service 1866-70, 1 clasp, Fenian Raid 1866 (Lt. H. Givins, R.C.R.), nearly extremely fine. Accompanied by copies of his Service Records and pertinent letters and documents, plus ten modern photographs taken from a contrived photograph in Fort Henry, Kingston, Ontario. Footnote: Hillier Givins originally applied for a commission in the British Army in October 1855, aged 17 years, on the recommendation of his uncle, a clergyman from Toronto but, owing to his father?s early death and his subsequent limited education, failed to meet the Military Board?s required standards. Notwithstanding this early setback, and as evidenced by the above described Medal & clasp, he did go on to obtain a commission in the Royal Canadian Rifles and witness active service in the Fenian troubles of 1866, in which year he was based at St. John?s, where he was appointed Town Mayor in June, in addition to participating in the engagement on Vermont Frontier and the occupation of Frelitzberg, and latterly taking command of a company in charge of prisoners. Official records further confirm that his Medal was sent to him at 2 Percy Villas, Seabrooke, Sandgate, Kent.
