  1. You should use the price of your coins when you are deciding how much you need to insure your collection for, since this is what you would have to pay in order to replace them should something happen.
    If you are lucky enough to find a coin that the Red Book prices at a hundred dollars in a bargain bin of coins being sold for ten dollars each, then chances are you've found a great deal, and it was put in there by accident.
