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.

Montenegro, Kingdom. An Order of Danilo I, Knight, c.1914

(Орден Књаза Данила I/Orden Knjaza Danila I). 2nd Model (1861-1918). Likely of French manufacture, in silver with black enamels, both centrepieces in Gold with red enamels, of fine quality, very sharp edges and points on the arms of the arms, measuring 38.7 mm (w) x 48.2 mm (h- inclusive of its integral suspension), intact enamels, on its original triangular ribbon with hook and eye, extremely fine.

Footnote: The Order of Danilo I was the first Montenegrin dynastic and state Order established by Prince Danilo Petrović Njegoš in 1853, for the Independence of Montenegro in 1852-1853. Alterations were made to the appearance of the original decoration created by Prince Danilo, and during the rule of His Majesty King Nikola I Petrović Njegoš, the Order underwent two restructures. During the first restructure in 1861, three classes were introduced, while in the second restructure, from 1873, an additional class was added, so that not only is there a star in the 1st class but also a 2nd class with star was introduced. By 1922, the order consisted of five classes: Grand Cross, Grand Officer, Commander, Officer and Knight. More changes occurred and today's five classes are: Grand Cross 1st Class, Grand Officer 2nd Class, Knight Commander 3rd Class, Knight 4th Class and Member 5th Class. This decoration is still awarded to prominent champions of the preservation of Montenegrin independence and, as indicated above, for other humanitarian, scientific, artistic and pro-social achievements pursuant to the conditions by which the Order is awarded were defined by statute.
