1. A transfer can only be considered a sale if money passes hands for the transfer. Otherwise, the transfer is a gratuitous transfer for no consideration. This is because some consideration in legal terms (something of value) must pass in order for a transfer to be considered a "sale". Where nothing of value passes upon a transfer, then it is a voluntary or gratuitous transfer for no consideration. It is not a sale. The presence of a valuation makes no difference to the nature of the transfer.
