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.

Serbia, Kingdom. An Order of the White Eagle, V Class with Swords, Knight, c.1940

Orden Belog Orla. Instituted in 1883. Military Division, Type II (1903-1941). In silver gilt with red, white and blue enamels, Type II with "1882" reverse, measuring 31.8 mm (w) x 68 mm (h) inclusive of its crown suspension, chipping evident in the blue enamels on both sides of the ribbon on the suspension, crazing in the white enamels of the eagle's tail and centrepiece on the obverse, centrepiece along with the adjoining crossed swords and crown suspension are loose, on its original triangular ribbon with hook and eye, fine.

Footnote: The Order of the White Eagle was a Royal Order in the Kingdom of Serbia (1883-1918) and the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1918-1945). King Milan I of Serbia instituted the Order of the White Eagle on January 23, 1883, concurrently with the Order of St. Sava. The Order had five classes and was conferred on Serbian and Yugoslav citizens for achievements in peace or war, or for special merits to the Crown, the state and nation. In the period between 1883 and 1898, the Order of the White Eagle was the highest award in the Kingdom of Serbia. In 1898, the Royal Order of Miloš the Great took precedence over the White Eagle and in 1904 the former was replaced by the Order of the Karađorđe's Star.
