Price for strange genuine items?

If the Unique quality item price is greater than the Genuine non-strange quality item price, then it is usually lower.

 

EDIT

 

For example:

 

Foppish Physician = 2.33

Gen. Foppish = 1.66

 

Strange Foppish = 12

Str. Gen. Foppish = ~9, if averaging the classifieds.

What about Strange Vintage/Collector's/Unusuals? (not Strange Haunted though since all Haunted items that can be Strange are always Strange Haunted, though that could change in the future)

 

Strange price + genuine price.

As two others already said, this usually isn't the case, personally I think "Strange price + Other quality price - Unique price" would likely be a good guide but I have never examined the market to see how accurate that is. Also it is clear in some cases that it wouldn't work, i.e. when the Unique quality is higher than the special one or in the case of the Strange Unusual Thirst Bloods where they had to be uncrated like that as a rare variation (there is even a special rule for pricing Unusual Thirst Bloods that states that the Strange Unusual copies cannot be used for pricing the normal Unusual copies).

But in general the equation breaks down with higher prices / greater differences between the prices of the different qualities, so you would probably need to do things like the percentage difference or variation to actually get a proper price.

 

Also the market links for dual quality items needs to be fixed.

Who's looking forward to pricing strange unusual professional killstreak burning battle-scarred rocket launchers?
So, is this an indication that support for double quality items might be on the horizon? At the very least there is an impending situation where there will be a greater Unusual / Strange Unusual divide so yeah, this issue became slightly more relevant.

And now the update has hit and it is revealed the new weapons are a new quality entirely, which means even the basic Stranges and Unusuals are likely dual-quality and can't currently be separated from basic decorated weapons. Also I guess this means the Strange Unusuals are actually triple-quality? Damn.
