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.

Sweden, Kingdom. An Order of Amarante, Grand Master's Star, c.1880

(Stora Amaranterorden). Institution Date of Kristina Day, July 24, 1760. A large embroidered breast star, consisting of a silver Maltese Cross with detailed silver bullion workmanship, with clusters of six golden rays in each quadrant, obverse centre presenting a centre monogram ""AA"" for Alexandra Amaranta with Swedish Royal Crown on blue cloth background, ""MD"" in golden threat denoting ‘MEMORIA DULCIS (Sweet memory), reverse with paper backing and possibly museum tag, with black cloth flaps for attachment, measuring 103 mm (w) x 102 mm (h), toning to silver, very fine.

Footnote: Under a backdrop of Swedish political turmoil, the Order of Amarante was instituted to act as an avenue and outlet for all social classes to interact and unite. The order is continued today and inducts new members every year at their main lodge is in Stockholm. This order should not be mistaken for the Masonic Order of the same name revised by in the United States.
