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:

A Canada General Service Medal to the 1st Administrative Battalion

A Canada General Service Medal to the 1st Administrative Battalion - 1 Clasp - FENIAN RAID 1866 (Sgt. A.A. McCulloch. 1st. Adm. Bn.). Naming is officially impressed, with the "t" of "Sgt." impressed over the originally impressed "e". Original ribbon, very dark patina, better than extremely fine.Footnote: Andrew Archibald McCullock served with the 1st Administrative Battalion in Montreal, Quebec. He was one of twenty-two members of the unit, half of which were officers, and included men such as George W. Stephen (later President of the Canadian Pacific Railway), and William W. Molson of Molson Breweries fame. McCullock's name is spelled incorrectly on the medal, the last letter of his surname should be "k" and not "h". He is listed on page 143 of the "Canada General Service Medal Roll, 1866-70" by John Thyen. He is listed in the Canada General Service Medal Register, the page appearing on the Library and Archives Canada website: http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/military-medals-1812-1969/Pages/image.aspx?Image=e008683210&Ecopy=e008683210
