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:

Footnote: In 1917, the provisional government in Thessaloniki proposed to award a medal as an honourable distinction for military actions in time of war. The medal was later established by Royal Decrees with modifications, additions and replacements of articles up to 1922. It was awarded to the Flags of distinguished battalions, to those serving in the Armed Forces for acts of gallantry and other exceptional actions, and to civilians for exceptional services offered during the First World War, the Ukraine Campaign of 1920 and the Greek-Turkish War of 1919-1922. The War Cross was instituted on June 30, 1917 and was awarded in three classes: I Class with a bronze laurel branch on the ribbon, II Class with a bronze star on the ribbon and III Class with a plain ribbon.
