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.

Greece, Kingdom. A Royal Order of George I, Knight, Civil Division, c.1930

(Βασιλικόν Τάγμα Γεωργίου Α'). Instituted 1915. In silver with red and white enamels, hallmarked on the ring, measuring 33 mm (w) x 62.5 mm (h) inclusive of its crown suspension, crazing evident in the white enamels on three arms, original ribbon, near extremely fine.

Footnote: The Royal Order of George I was founded in 1915 by King Constantine I in honour of his father, George I. It was only the second Greek order to be created after the Order of the Redeemer in 1833, and remained the second senior award of the Greek state for the duration of its existence. The order was closely associated with the Greek monarchy, and was hence abolished with the establishment of the Second Hellenic Republic in 1924, to be replaced with the Order of the Phoenix. The order was restored along with the monarchy in 1935, and continued to be awarded until the final abolition of the monarchy in 1973. It was replaced by the Third Hellenic Republic in 1975 by the Order of Honour. The Order has five classes: Grand Cross, Grand Commander, Commander, Gold Cross and Silver Cross. A sixth, supreme class comprising a Collar of the order was originally envisaged, but never realized.
