9. Mail bids in the amount over the lower estimated prices will be accepted and executed on a competitive basis. For example, if the current high bid is $50.00 and you bid $100.00, the current high bid will then be yours at $55.00. We will then bid for you on a competitive basis up to your limit of $100.
