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:

Footnote: The Order of the Leader (Nishan-i-Sardari) was founded by King Amanullah in 1923, as a reward for exceptional services to the ruler and the nation. It was awarded in two classes: 1st Class (Sardar-i-A'ala) and 2nd Class (Sardar-i-Ali) and conferred by the King on his own initiative. It was made obsolete in 1929 and later revived by King Muhammad Zahir Shah. Recipients of the original order enjoyed the titles of Sardar-i-A'ala or Sardar-i-Ali before their names and received grants of land. (C:41)
