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.

(Orden al Mérito Naval). Instituted 1866. Juan Carlos I (1975-2014). Type II. An eight-pointed silver star, with obverse centre in silver gilt depicting a white-enamelled Latin Cross, with superposed blue-enamelled anchor in silver gilt, surmounted red-enamelled Spanish Royal Crown and clasp also in silver gilt, alternating silver-gilded lions and castles in each quadrant, reverse with typical time of period pin assembly and dual stays, measuring 62.97 mm (w) x 62.70 mm (h), with minor loss of white enamels, near to mint.

 

Footnote: The Order of Naval Merit was established in Spain by the Queen Isabel II on August 3, 1866. It was founded to recognize the Spanish Navy force which was taking part in many overseas battles at that time. The Order also recognized civil and commercial ships who served to Spanish Navy.  

 

The Order is currently conferred upon members of the Spanish Naval Forces, Civil Guard, civilians, and foreigners for meritorious and gallant actions within the sphere of naval service.

 

The White Division is awarded in recognition of meritorious service during missions, or services led by the Armed Forces, and connected to the defense of the nation.
