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.

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:

RFC CERTIFICATE & ORIGINAL WING 1917

An original framed certificate titled, "Royal Flying Corps (Officers)". This is Lieu. J.P.McRae?s "Graduation Certificate" from the Central Flying School, in Upavon, Wilts., and is dated 31st. Aug. 1917. "This is to Certify that Lieu. J.P. McRae Canadian Army Service Corps has completed a course in the military wing and is qualified for service in the Royal Flying Corps". To add to this superb document, is McRae?s wartime and original pattern 1917 RFC Wing. The felt around the edges has been trimmed but other than that it is in very fine condition. It is quite evident that the wing has been glued to the certificate and has been there for a long time. The glue has dried and the wing has shifted showing the lighter unstained document underneath, also shows areas of darker color where the dried glue has stained. Its signed in ink by the School Commandant. Document has been folded showing both horizontal and vertical folds but there does not appear to be any tears. Size of frame and document is approx. 7.5" x 8.75". The wood frame is fine with just normal scratches, dents and paint wear. The back still has most of the paper covering (its fragile and ripped) showing that it has not been tampered with. Rare matching pair, Great War Canadian RFC certificate and the wing.
