 "the value or price which is shown on, for example, a stamp, a coin or a bank note''... 
 

   You could use the following imagery: you can be misled by buying something for, say, one Dollar.

    Let´s say, you have two Dollars in your pocket and a potato worth it, but the Dollar is devaluated against the Real.  The next day the Potato cost just the same, but two Dollars don´t buy it anymore, thus, now the two Dollars you brought misled you.

     You took it at it´s face value.
