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:

An 1898-1899 State of Colorado Spanish-American War Medal; Named

Bronze, engraver marked "H. OTTO F." on the obverse, engraved to "HARRY PARSONS" on the reverse, 38.2 mm, original ribbon with hanger marked "1898 1899", pin has detached from the hanger, very light contact, extremely fine.

Footnote: The medal and a certificate were awarded to very officer and enlisted man that served during the Spanish-American War of Philippine Insurrection in a United States Volunteer organization credited to Colorado. This would have included members of the First Infantry who served in the Philippines and the First Battery of Field Artillery that served in the United States. It would have excluded service in the regular army or navy. The medals were manufactured by Joslin and Park of Denver. An estimated 1,200 men in this unit were eligible for the medal. All medals were apparently issued with the recipient's name engraved on the reverse and came in a presentation case containing the name of the manufacturer on the inside cover.
