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:

In Flanders Fields; America's Answer Certificate

Illustrating a scene of poppies growing in Flanders Fields flanked by draped Belgian flags on either side, the one on the left with a cross tucked behind it, above two inscriptions, the certificate divided into two sections: under the heading "In Flanders Fields" at the left with the inscription "In Flanders Fields the poppies blow / Between the crosses, row on row, / That mark our place; and in the sky / The larks still bravely singing, Fly, / Scarce heard amidst the guns below. / We are the dead. Short days ago / We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, / Loved and were loved, and we lie / In Flanders Fields. / Take up our quarrel with the Foe! / To you from falling hands we throw / The torch. Be yours to hold it high! / If ye break faith with us who die / We shall not sleep, though poppies grow / In Flanders Fields." below and under the heading "America's Answer" at the right with the inscription "Rest ye in peace, ye Flandersdead, / The fight that ye so bravely led / We've taken up. And we will keep / True faith with you who lie asleep / With each a cross to mark his bed, / And poppies blowing overhead, / Where once his own life blood ran red. / So let your rest be sweet and deep / In Flanders Fields. / Fear not that ye have died for naught, / The torch ye threw to us we have caught, / Ten million hands will hold it high, / And Freedom's light shall never die! / We've learned the lesson that ye taught / In Flanders Fields." below, the two sections separated by a French flag with "1914-18" at its base, a British flag at the far left with "1914-18" at its base and an American flag at the far right with "1917-18" at its base, artist signed "George G. Street, 1918" at the bottom right, in black ink with watercolours on a light brown paper stock, under glass in a wooden frame, measuring 252 mm x 328 mm, extremely fine. (C:17)
