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.

Peru, Republic. An Order of the Peruvian Sun, Grand Cross Star with Diamonds, c.1980

(Orden del Sol del Perú). Reinstated on April 21, 1921. Type II (1921-present). An outstanding and very scarce Grand Cross breast star, consisting of a multirayed eighteen-pointed sun in silver gilt, the obverse centre featuring a fine superposed Peruvian coat of arms on a bright gilded background, encircled by a silver ring with encrusted twelve jewel-cut diamonds, circumscribed by an enameled red and white border inscribed EL SOL DEL PERU 1821, as well by a large enameled green laurel wreath with tied ribbon, the reverse with central medallion inscribed EL SOL DEL PERÚ - GRAN CRUZ (Peruvian Sun - Grand Cross), encircled by an engraved laurel wreath, presenting principal slider, marked by Peruvian hallmark “925” for sterling silver, denoting 0.925g of silver fineness, measuring 81.83 mm (w) x 82.26 mm (h), with minor toned silver on the obverse, otherwise near mint condition.


Footnote: Created just after the end of the War of Independence of Peru, the Order of the Sun was founded by the revolutionary hero General San Martin in 1821 to reward the Peruvian, Argentine, and Chilean Officers who had distinguished themselves in the Peruvian War of Independence. The Order was discontinued on March 9, 1825. Some examples of this Order are exposed by different museums in South America. The Order was reinstated on April 21, 1921 to commemorate the centennial of the declaration of Peruvian independence. It was designed to reward civilians and military personnel, both national and foreign, in recognition of meritorious service to the nation in fields such as arts, letters, culture, and politics.
