It does it by the highest amount that has been bid above what the next highest is. In most cases, if you bid $100.00 it will go to $101.00. But you can also have someone who doesn't bid in strictly even dollars so if you bid $100.00 and the bid $100.01, it only goes up by the 1 cent above your bid because they bid before you did. The only bidding where it shows what you bid is if you are below a minimum set by the CMP. If it is a 1911 you are bidding on, it will follow that rule until it reaches the minimum that the CMP put on it. After that point, it goes up by $1.00 or their bid increment setting or to the highest bid above the next highest. So if you see a bid of $1000 on the 1911s it has not met the minimum and is the max bid that has been placed. If you see a $2000.00 bid that means that someone bid $1999.00 to $2000 and another person bid $2000.
