Stolen money
OK merchants won't buy stolen goods (except fences). But, do they accept stolen gold or is that also tainted? Money is money, how would they know not to take a stolen gold coin?

They can recognize stolen flowers as well. Don't look for logic.
And they won't accept the stolen gold, even if it is mixed amongst the legal gold.

That is actually not true.

"Gold can sometimes be marked as stolen, though the cause of this occurrence is unknown. If you are arrested while carrying gold that is marked as stolen, the amount of gold that is considered "stolen" will be confiscated. Gold that is marked as stolen can be used at merchants (even ones which are not fences) normally, used as bribe money, and used to buy and improve property in holds from the hold's steward."

Most of my characters have been thieves. I play with hardened economy and loosing in combat may permanently cost me money and gear. My characters are often stealing money and stashing coins + extra gear in safe locations. Every home is more like a safehouse for me.

That is how I knew that stole money can be used with merchants. I either stash it quick or use it fast so I won't loose it for guards. :)

Not true, with the relevent perks in speech they'll buy anything.
