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

Order of Leopold – First Class in Gold

Order of Leopold - Cross First Class, by Rothe, in Gold and enamels, 40.5mm (x80mm including crown suspension); crown measures 39.4x44.8mm; minor enamel repair to crown and the cross, in good very fine condition. Cross and the crown although both made by Rothe, have different markings, and are of different period manufacture; crown has a mark “750 FR” (for period 1867-72), while the cross have a mark on eyelet “ FR” and “Gemsenkopf A” (for period 1872-1914), and likely manufactured circa 1900. This mixing of crowns and crosses is well known practice of Austrian Order Chancellery and evident on many Austrian Orders, including MMTO and St. Stephen, and is a result of either cross or crown being lost or damaged, subsequently sent to Order Chancellery where missing part was replaced; this is evident on many high grade Austrian Imperial Orders at the Austrian War Museum in Vienna. Without sash ribbon. (AO1056)
