Answer:  VALUED IT

(A non-stinker, if there ever was one!  “Valued” and “appraised” are valid synonyms, so at worst it’s a mild pun.  Surprisingly, we have a new clue word today in “fiscal”.  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to add this to his world famous clue word database!  So, naturally, “siflac” is a new jumble, but so is “odive”.  We have definitely seen both “citile” and “tinyu” in the past.  The answer letter layout was an admirably cryptic jumble too.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon is reminiscent of The Antiques Roadshow.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
