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.

Saxony, Kingdom. An Order of the Rue Crown, I Class Grand Cross Sash

(Hausorden der Rautenkrone). Instituted in 1807. Fabricated from a very dark green silk, incorporating a decorative moiré pattern, the end tied-off with a replacement clip, measuring 100 mm wide x 730 mm in length, exhibiting moderate wear, better than very fine.

 

Footnote: The Order of the Rue Crown or Order of the Crown of Saxony is a dynastic order of knighthood of the Kingdom of Saxony. The order takes its name from the green floral crown of rue (crancelin) found in the coat of arms of Saxony. It occupies the highest rank of the former Saxonian honour system. The order was created to be the civil counterpart to the Military Order of St. Henry, the only order previously at the disposal of the new king. It was established in 1807 by Frederick Augustus I, the first King of Saxony. The order was originally limited to twenty-four knights, but exceptions were made for members of ruling houses and those whose membership in the order would add to its prestige.
