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-Two Percent (22%) of the Hammer Price

Second China War Medal

Two clasps: Taku Forts 1860; Pekin 1860, impressed (John McKenna, 2nd Bn. 1st Regt.), slack suspension claw, one or two edge bruises, nearly very fine. John McKenna was born in Sligo and enlisted in the 1st Regiment in Glasgow in Sep 1857, aged 17 years. In his subsequent career of 21 years with the Colours he served for 12 years in the East Indies and for 19 months in China, where he qualified for the above described Medal and clasps. McKenna, who was finally discharged in Mar 1879 in consequence of having been found ?unfit for further service?, did not qualify for the L.S. & G.C. Medal, having several times been entered in the regimental defaulter?s book. Sold with copies of service records.
