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:

WWI Vimy Pilgrimage 90th Anniversary Medal

WWI Vimy Pilgrimage 90th Anniversary Medal - Silvered metal, obverse illustrating the figure of the cloaked young female that stands on top of the front wall of the Vimy Memorial, which overlooks the Douai Plains, her head bowed, her eyes cast down, and her chin resting in one hand, a cluster of seven poppies below and inscribed "PILGRIMAGE - PELERINAGE" above, reverse inscribed "FONDATION VIMY FOUNDATION" above the Vimy Memorial in the centre, 30.4 mm x 30.7 mm, on four-colour ribbon with silvered metal pinback hanger, illustrating a beaver standing on a rock in front of a cluster of maple leaves and inscribed "VIMY APRIL 9AVRIL 1917", light contact, broken clasp on the pinback, near extremely fine. Footnote: The four vertical bands on the ribbon represent the four Canadian divisions which fought together for the first time on April 9, 1917 at the Battle of Vimy Ridge. The red represents the First Division, the dark blue the Second Division, the gray-blue the Third Division, and the green the Fourth Division. The order of the ribbon’s (left to right) colours reflects the positioning of the Canadian Divisions facing the German defences on the day of the battle. The date on the hanger, "VIMY APRIL 9 AVRIL 1917", salutes the first day of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
