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.

Naval General Service Medal, Private Hale, RM

1 Clasp - SYRIA (WILLIAM HALE.). Naming is officially impressed. Very crisp detail, high relief, ribboned, bruised, extremely fine. Accompanied by seven pages of research papers from the National Archives, including copies of his Attestation Paper, Service Records and Discharge Papers. Footnote: William Hale was born in 1809 in Bidford, Alcester, Warwick. He signed his Attestation Paper on September 2, 1831 in Warwick and joined the Royal Marines, listing his trade as that of Carpenter. Hale served aboard five ships during his thirteen years, nine months and five days of service, including H.M.S. Volage (November 1932 - January 1833), Victory (February 1833 - February 1834), Britannia (September 1835 - April 1836), Bellerophon (April 1836 - June 1841) and Illustrious (August 1841 - June 1845). He was tried by Court Martial in 1834 for absentia, after which his conduct was good, producing a Certificate of Good Conduct from H.M.S. Illustrious and had previously served on H.M.S. Bellerophon in the operation on the Coast of Syria, earning him the Syria clasp. The Syrian war is the name generally given to the war of 1839-40 fought in the Middle East, mainly on territory that is now Lebanon, between the Allied Powers of the United Kingdom, the Austrian Empire, the Russian Empire and the Ottoman Empire against the expansionist designs of Muhammad Ali of Egypt, the Pasha of Egypt, tacitly supported by Spain and to a lesser extent July Monarchy France.
