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:

Twenty percent (20%) of the Hammer Price

They were mobilized detachments for active service on April 10, 1885, which served with Middleton's Column of the North West Field Force at Batoche and Fish Creek, until they were removed from active service on July 24, 1885.

Griffin was listed on the 58th Roll Call with No. 2 Service Company in 1941 but by the time the 60th Roll Call was released in 1943, he was one of five men who were listed as having Answered Their Last Roll Call, Griffin having passed away in September of that year, at the age of 78.
