Your entered maximum bid will not be disclosed to the seller or other auction participants at any point.

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.

Russia, Imperial. An Eastern Orthodox Chaplain's Pectoral Commemorative Cross for the War of 1812

In copper gilt on bronze, designed in the form of a Latin cross, obverse with the all-seeing eye at the junction of the arms, the year "1812" placed upon the radiating rays below the eye, reverse inscribed in Russian "Not Unto Us, Not Unto Us, But In Thy Name", measuring 46.3 mm (w) x 81 mm (h) inclusive of its integral ring, spotting, contact marks, better than very fine.


Footnote: The Cross was instituted on August 30, 1814 during the reign of Tsar Alexander I, to commemorate the victorious conclusion of the campaign on Russian soil against the Napoleonic forces. By the time the award was established, the victorious Russian troops were already returning to their homeland, after they had defeated the army of Napoleon in Russia and in Germany and had entered Paris with their allies. It was specifically created to award the clergy for its great spiritual support during the invasion of Russia by the French armies.
