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.

Buyer's Premium

All bids are subject to a Buyer's Premium which is in addition to the placed successful bid. The following rate of Buyer's Premium will be added to the Hammer Price of each Lot that you purchase:

Vatican. A Mentana Cross, Type I with Three Clasps, c.1870

(Croce "Fidel et virtvti" detta "di Mentana"). Instituted in 1867. 3 Clasps - MONTE ROTONDO, NEROLA, ROMA. In nickel, measuring 41.5 mm (w) x 48.8 mm (h) inclusive of its laterally-pierced ball suspension, light contact, spotting, accompanied by an original ribbon with the three clasps affixed, better than very fine. Footnote: This Cross was instituted on November 14, 1867 by Pope Pius IX, in commemoration of the Battle of Mentana, and the other battles that were fought to protect Rome against Garibaldi. The Cross was awarded to Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and all other ranks of men in the Papal Army and French Corps who participated in these battles. This is the Type I "Official Version" which was manufactured in both nickel and in war materials. The ribbon may be decorated with clasps associated with the battles in which the recipient participated, including "BAGNOREA", "VITERBO", "NEROLA", "ACQUAPENDENTE", "MONTE-LIBRETTI", "MONTE-ROTONDO", "ROMA" and "MENTANA". There was a Type II "Un-Official" Version created for Officers that was manufactured in both silver and silvered war materials.
