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:

Memorial Cross - Death in 1956 resulting from WWII

Defence Medal; Canadian Volunteer Service Medal with Overseas Bar; War Medal 1939-1945; and Canadian Memorial Cross, ERII, engraved (F-82033 SGT. C.F. MAHANEY). Three medals come in their boxes of issue, while the Cross comes in its case of issue. Original ribbons on medals, no ribbon on Cross, better than extremely fine. Accompanied by copies of his Attestation Paper, Service Records, Medical Records, Discharge Papers, Pension Papers and Death Notice. Footnote: Claude Francis Mahaney was born on April 8, 1902 and signed his Attestation Paper on July 17, 1940 in Windsor, Nova Scotia, listing his trade as Retailer. He was a member of the 5th L.A.A. Regt, R.C.A., spending five and half years in the Canadian Army before he was discharged from service on January 23, 1946. He was awarded the Memorial Cross upon his death, August 17, 1956, at the age of 54. The Canadian Pension Commission ruled that his death, due to Cardiovascular Renal Disease, was related to his military service during World War II. As he was single, the Cross was forwarded to his mother, Laura Mahaney.
