    Has anyone has to do this? I'm just curious what's in store for me.

    I sold a watch on eBay recently. The final bid was $620 and I had it insured for $700. I sent it priority mail over two and a half weeks ago. It was only going from here (Georgia) to Texas. The guy says he hasn't received it.

    What all info do I need to take with me to the Post Office?

    Hope you have a receipt or a web printout on the selling price (retail value) for the watch. What you insure it for doesn't have too much bearing with what you'll get from the insurance if you can't demonstrate the "retail" selling price of the item insured.

    I have that info from many sites. The retail is $1400 but the street price is just over $1000.

    I suppose since I only insured it for $700, that's the maximum they will give me?
