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.

Austria, Imperial. Statutes of the Franz Joseph Order

(Statuten für den Kaiserlich Oesterreichischen Franz Joseph-Orden). This is an extremely well-preserved volume of statutes of the Franz Joseph Order. It is constructed of a heavy card stock binding with a faux dark blue leather exterior, with a gold embossed inscription of “STATUTEN FÜR DEN KAISERLICH OESTERREICHISCHEN FRANZ JOSEPH-ORDEN” (“STATUTES FOR THE IMPERIAL AUSTRIAN FRANZ JOSEPH ORDER”) on the cover. The book features 22 pages with details of the provisions of the order, including its classes and how it may be worn by a recipient. It also includes four pages with full-colour, captioned illustrations of the various decorations of the order, with each page separated by a wax paper divider. While the book lacks publisher information, it features remarks by Emperor Franz Joseph dated 23 March 1908. The book measures 268 mm (w) x 350 mm (h). With the exception of some minor, age-appropriate material fatigue, it is in extremely fine condition.
