The appraising proficiency allows a character to estimate the value of crafted items (such as art, jewelry, antiques, etc.). When examining the object itself, a character can ask the DM to make a proficiency check to identify if it's a fake, and to estimate it's value to the nearest 100 gp or 1,000 gp. On a failure, the character cannot estimate the price. On a critical failure, the character wildly misidentifies the price as being much lower than it really is.

CP 2, Initial Rating 8, Intelligence (Reason), Wisdom (Intuition)
Makes an estimate as to the value of a common object (including items made of precious metals and gemstones) within +/- 10%. Objects of art, tapestries, furniture, weapons, or other unusual items can be estmated to within +/- 25%, as long as the character has some basis for comparison. This requires no proficiency check, and the DM rolls to determine the appraisal's accuracy.
A charcter can request the DM to make a check to identify a fake item or a forgery, to make a very accurate assment (within +/- 5%), or to make a general assessment of unique items such as artifacts. A critical failure indicates a wildly inaccurate assessment.
