Unless the GM is playing an NPC in the adventure, why would they insert themselves into the party’s decisions about splitting up loot?. The party should make all loot decisions, with the “meta” understanding that the things they find written into the adventure are usually there in order for them to have a chance of succeeding. The party should also understand that choosing to sell items is not a given, and that finding other items they might prefer is also not guaranteed, unless there is an available settlement with quite a robust stat-block.
