Regarding your statement (which I have italicized above) I assume you mean value not price - after all, in a free market environment when a seller and a buyer agree on an amount of money to be transferred in order that ownership of a given object is also transferred, that is the price. Not all would agree that the amount represents the value of the object but all must agree that it was the price. In reality though, it need not be a free market for the idea to have validity.
Well, I'm almost certain about my machine and mask, but the machine (an S10 Autoset) hasn't arrived yet and the mask (probably a P10) hasn't been definitely chosen. So I'm gonna wait a few days and fill my profile.
About price x value, I believe you're right. It is quite common in Brazil to use 'price' (preço) in this context, like "Aquele mercado vende leite pelo dobro do preço" ("That market sells milk for the double of it's price") while, in reality, you're basically saying that it sells milk for the double of the common price in other markets, which would be the "real" value (valor). Thanks for the correction. I would never guess by myself that using price in this context was a bit strange for you, hahaha.
