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.

Spain, Fascist State. An Order of Aeronautical Merit with White Distinction, Breast Star (1945-1975)

(Orden del Mérito Aeronáutico). Instituted in 1945. Multi-piece construction, the cross and various insignia in bronze gilt with red, white and blue enamels, all of which are mounted to an eight-pointed silver star base, each star point with five dual-faceted rays, unmarked, measuring 62.8 mm (w) x 62.8 mm (h), vertical pinback flanked by dual stays, intact enamels, very light contact, near extremely fine.

 

Footnote: The Order of Aeronautical Merit was established on November 30, 1945 by the chief of state, Francisco Franco. It was amended in 1976, 1995, 2003 and 2007, the name ultimately changed to the Cross of Aeronautical Merit. It is Spain's military award for gallantry or merit in the air and can be made in war or at times of peace. It is awarded to members of the Spanish Armed Forces, Guardia Civil or civilians. It was originally awarded in three classes and a cross in silver for non-commissioned ranks, but in 1995 it lost the rank of an order of merit and was reduced to two and the number of categories extended to four. The version with White Distinction under Franco was awarded for actions, deeds or distinguished service during missions of ordinary or extraordinary service in the armed forces or in connection with defense of the country.
