Default USPS - Insurance cost for a big item?

Hi guys - I have a tentative deal on a sale of a card for $328. Buyer wants insurance and said he will cover it.

Any idea how much USPS will charge? I've never had to get it before.

I don't want to tell him a certain amount and it not be enough then have to go back to him.

Thanks in advance!

If you are using PayPal shipping, you can use this to generate the shipping cost w/ insurance:
