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:

Twenty-Two Percent (22%) of the Hammer Price

FIRST DAY VIMY KIA- 18th Infantry

British War and Victory Medals (401335 A. CPL. B. PANTALL. 18 - CAN.INF.). Naming is officially impressed. Crisp detail, extremely fine. Confirmed killed in action (CWG) 09/04/1917. First day of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.Footnote: Bernard Pantall completed his Attestation Paper under the name of George Symonds, on August 4, 1915, in London, Ontario. He stated his date of birth as June 18, 1894 in Birmingham, England and listed his trade as Labourer. The notes on the reverse of his attestation indicate that he had an appendicitis scar and two tattoos, one of an eagle on his right arm and one that read "Friendship" on his left arm. Not only did he have an alias, it would have been difficult to deny his original identity, if questioned.
