    is this a bug or working as intended, the second expansion crafted items sell for a penny(one silver coin)?

      Might be intended as a way to reduce plat generation from NPCing; and perhaps as a way to counter botting. It does hurt actual legit players though. Might be a good time to suggest to Morticus to review the NPC value of crafted items whilst he works on other craft-related stuff.
