Bonus vs. price fetched

Some research on how much you get for an item from a fence with different bonuses.

All items were jewellery (in top condition) fenced to Sol, and the first offer was accepted. The first three things were a gold ring, a gold necklace, and a gold bracelet; items after that were different finesmithed jewellery.

(Two notes: The "full value" line is there to more easily show the difference between value and amount fenced for. Also, the lines for the three highest bonuses--300, 350, and 435--run together a bit, as the differences between them are small.)
