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.

(Kotkaristi teenetemärk). Instituted 1928. Civil Division. Constructed of silver gilt, an outstanding enameled black Maltese Cross with gilded edges, the obverse centre presenting a silver Estonian Eagle clutching a sword and an Estonian shield partially enameled, the reverse inscribed by institution date of 24 II 1928, with motto Pro Patria (For Fatherland) along the arms, measuring 47 mm (w) x 46.8 mm (h), suspended by replacement ribbon, with slightly loose of the central eagle, otherwise extremely fine.

 

Footnote: This Order was established by the Estonian Defence League in 1928 in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Estonian independence. In 1936 it was adopted by the Estonian Parliament in the Decoration Act, which recognized it as a national award. The Order was suppressed during the Soviet occupation, but was later renewed in 1995 after the restoration of Estonian independence.
