APPRAISAL

Knowing an item's value is more than just a gut feeling about how much it'll fetch.  True merchant knowledge comes from a rigorous understanding of markets, how one good affects another, and all the various economic forces that act upon a market.  The same good could be worth twice as much in one market than another due to the scarcity of another commodity, and all of that is important in determining the current price of any particular good.

READING THE LIST

The prices in this list are to be the understood "expected going rate" for a given product, at least in the listed area.

Because of currency laws in the Throne, currency use is tied to social class.  Copper is for use by the Peasant and city Scum, silver is used by the Merchant class, and gold is used for luxuries purchased by the Nobility and Gentry, though the upper classes may use the baser coin at will.  The items on this list are listed in terms of a specific coinage, and if you do not have the appropriate coinage or are not of the appropriate Social Class, you can expect trouble completing the transaction.  While money does have an approximate value in regards to other tiers of coinage, they are not interchangeable.
