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.

In silvered bronze, obverse illustrating three soldiers marching, with a fourth soldier on horseback behind them, artillery at the left, tank treads at the right and engraver marked "AFFER", reverse with a large fasces, backed by the Spanish fascist yoke and arrows insignia, a lighthouse giving off light at the left and waves below, a mast with a sail and surmounted by an eagle above, inscribed "26 VIII 1937" and "SANTANDER" on either side of the eagle, measuring 32.2 mm in diameter, scattered silvering wear, near extremely fine.
 
Footnote: The Battle of Santander was fought over the summer of 1937 in the War in the North campaign in the Spanish Civil War. Santander's fall on August 26th assured the Nationalist conquest of the province of Santander, now Cantabria, and marked the last stand of the Republic's "Army of the North," which was destroyed and captured in the fighting. The Corps of Volunteer Troops (Corpo Truppe Volontarie, CTV) was a Fascist Italian expeditionary force which was sent to Spain to support the Nationalist forces under General Francisco Franco against the Spanish Republic during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939.
