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 M.S.M. Group - Sgt. S.J. Baxter, CAMC

1914-15 Star (1563 Pte S.J. BAXTER. CAN:A.M.C.); British War and Victory Medals (SJT. S.J. BAXTER. C.A.M.C.); Army Meritorious Service Medal, George V (1563 Pte S.J. BAXTER. CAN.A.M.C.). Naming is officially impressed on all four. Board mounted, lightly polished yet nearly very fine. Accompanied by copies of his Attestation Paper and Discharge Certificate in a duotang folder. Footnote: Samuel Joseph Baxter was born in Hamilton, Ontario on June 11, 1875. He signed his Attestation Paper on November 20, 1914 in Toronto and listed his trade as Street Car Conductor. He enlisted with the Canadian Army Medical Corps early in 1914 and went overseas with the First Canadian Division Expeditionary Force, which sailed from Gaspe Bay in Quebec on 33 troop transports, October 3, 1914. This was the largest troop movement to this time that the world had ever seen and was guarded by cruisers of the Royal Navy. This convoy arrived at Davenport on October 14 and embarked for further training on Salisbury Plain. Early in 1915, the First Division proceeded to France. They received their first baptism of fire at the Second Battle of Ypres on April 22, 1915, where the Germans launched their first gas attack. Baxetr saw a great deal of service with the 5th Field Ambulance, attached to the 2nd Battalion Canadian Machine Gun Corp. Upon demobilization, he was discharged from service on May 25, 1919. Along with his campaign medals, he was awarded the Army Meritorious Service Medal, achieved when he was a Private, for gallantry not in the face of the enemy or for devotion to duty. During the Great War, only 1422 M.S.M.'s were won by Canadians. No citations were given on this medal. After 1917, it was replaced by the British Empire Medal.
