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. A Most Noble Order of the Seraphim, Knight’s Collar, c.1930

(Kungliga Serafimerorden). Instituted 23 February 1748 by King Frederick I. In bronze gilt, consisting of ten gilded figures of Seraphim displaying slight differences between their facial expressions, each one surrounded by detailed wings, featuring prominent Christian symbolism, alternating with ten light-blue enamel Patriarchal Crosses with gilded borders, each of these are linking by three loops on the top and five loops on the bottom, with plain reverse on each link, measuring 1340 mm of length, missing one Seraphim and one Patriarchal Cross, showing evident casting links, as well as repaired enamels, one link with partial enamel loss, presenting a central hook to wear the badge and loop suspension directly opposite to the former, with lost of the second loop suspension and both catches, overall good condition.

Footnote: Founded as a matter of protocol between Russia and Sweden after the 1741-1743 War, the Order of the Seraphim has been awarded in recognition of significant contributions to the Swedish charities and eminent humanitarian work. The Order participated in the planning and construction of the Seraphim Hospital in Stockholm, and took care of it until its close in 1980. The Order has a unique class that is still conferred exclusively upon foreigners since 1975, and upon the Royal family since 1995.
