Over $5000.00 we use Registered insured mail (we use private insurance).Up thro four coins we can use the small Flat Rate Boxes (four is all we can fit in one and still meet our insurers requirements). Over four coins we will use the Medium Flat Rate Boxes. Shipping rare coins weight is usually not a factor. We always use a private insurance provider.
