Collector's interests vary as greatly athe value of their collections. Serious collectors need specialty coverage that fully protects the value of their hobbies, passions, and toys.   

Traditional homeowners' policies offer limited coverage for most collectibles.  Therefore, you may consider purchasing a collections policy, also known as valuable articles policy, to preserve your treasured possessions.   

Collections can be insured in several ways.  Coverage is typically offered by scheduling individual pieces if the collection contains higher-valued items or under a blanket amount, such as $5,000 to covering a bundle of lower-valued pieces.  Often, it's a combination of both.
