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:

Belgium, Kingdom. Two Awards & Decorations

Military Cross (Croix Militaire). Instituted in 1885 (in bronze gilt with black enamels, measuring 39 mm (w) x 63.2 mm (h), intact enamels, large rosette on its original ribbon); and Cross of the Veterans of King Albert I 1909-1934 (Croix des Vétérans du Roi Albert I, 1909-1934). Instituted in 1934 (in bronze gilt, engraver marked "E. d B." on the obverse, measuring 31 mm (w) x 49.5 mm (h), bronze palm on its original ribbon with dual prong pinback). Together, better than very fine.

 

Footnote: The Military Cross is a military long service decoration of Belgium. It was established by Royal Decree on February 11, 1885 and is awarded to commissioned officers in the Belgian Armed Forces for loyal and uninterrupted service or to Non-Belgian military officers for distinguished service in favor of the Military of Belgium. In regards to the Cross of the Veterans of King Albert I (1875-1934), he ascended the Belgian throne in 1909 and is probably best known for his resistance of the German invasion of 1914 against overwhelming odds, for leading his army through the Battle of Yser and back into Brussels to a hero’s welcome in 1918.
