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:

Twenty percent (20%) of the Hammer Price

Naming is officially engraved, maker marked BIRKS, marked STERLING, extremely fine. Sold with copies of his Attestation Paper, Casualty Forms and Medical Records. Footnote: Samuel Hanford McKee was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick on October 11, 1874. He signed his Attestation Paper on September 25, 1914 at Valcartier, Quebec. He stated that he was married to Shirley, had had nine years previous service in the Canadian Militia and that his trade was that of a Physician. He began his service in France in late 1914 and was later invalided to hospital on October 27, 1915 with Ameobic Dysentery and this plagued him until the fall of 1917.

He was struck off the CEF list on January 15, 1920 and was noted at the bottom of his Certificate of Service that he was "recommended for a Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George" (May 2, 1916) and "brought to the notice of the Secretary of State for War, for valuable services rendered in connection with the war" (August 13, 1918).
