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:

WWI Trio - A.M. J.WATTS - R.F.C. & R.N.

1914-15 Star (4503 2 - A.M. J. WATTS. R.F.C.); British War and Victory Medals (ART. ENG. J. WATT. R.N.). Naming is officially impressed on the trio. Board mounted, extremely fine. Also included is a duotang folder with his military biography and one ship photograph. Footnote: John Watt joined the Royal Flying Corps possibly as early as 1914 and in order to receive the 1914-15 Star, must have served in France and Belgium during those years. As that medal only shows the earliest rank attained, 2nd Air Mechanic, he probably received higher promotions in the Royal Flying Corps. As engineers were always needed to man the growing number of ships in the Royal Navy, he transferred to that service, probably on the date of his ranking as an Artificer Engineer, June 18, 1918. On September 24, he joined H.M.S. Champion, one of the newly commissioned Cruisers of the Calliope Class. At the end of the war, this ship was with the Grand Fleet, serving as a Flotilla Leader. He continued to serve until 1919, when he disappears from the Navy Lists. This could mean that he was demobilzed, without pension, or simply returned to the ranks, to continue in the Royal Navy, when the close of the war meant a cutback in the number of ships and men needed.
