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.

Ordre du Mérite Indochinois, 1er classe; Six-pointed silver-gilt star with ball-tipped finials on oak wreath suspension; the face with a circular central medallion bearing Annamese characters meaning ‘It is worthy to develop knowledge’ within a stippled ring inscribed ‘INDOCHINE FRANCAISE’ (French Indochina), arabesques below; the reverse identical; diameter 47mm (1.85 inch); on an old correct ribbon lacking the rosette for a first class award.

The third class was limited to 500 members, the second class to 100 members and the first class to 15 members.

 

The insignia were made by Arthus Bertrand of Paris.

 

The Order is rare in all classes.
