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:

Newfoundland Volunteer War Service Medal

Bronze, 37 mm, impressed on rim "3836", nice patina, extremely fine. In hardshelled case of issue, maker marked Royal Mint, with additional ribbon. RARE. Footnote: While the Second World War was being fought, Newfoundland was still a seperate British colony and did not enter Canadian Confederation until 1949. Consequently, Newfoundland servicemen did not qualify for the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal. This deficiency was not remedied until July 1981, when the Newfoundland provincial government instituted this medal. Those who had served with the Canadian forces, on the other hand, and already held the Canadian medal, were not eligible for this award. The medal could be claimed by next-of-kin of those who died in or since the war. There were 7,500 issued, all in bronze.
