For the ones that are a little more valuable do keep them
In a safe, etc? What kind? Any other ideas?

I have three levels of security. 1. Boxes,tubs,totes. 2. Lock boxes,small safe. 3. Safety deposit box.

I really have no security. All mine are either scattered across my desk or in a cabinet. Not that I really have anything of significant value lol.

Just leave all of them on a porch with a light over them. No one would try stealing something so obviously in the open.
Just kidding of course. Nothing beats a safe deposit box at a bank. Although those are getting a bit expensive. I just got a letter from one of my banks saying how my safe deposit box will now be costing me more.

I have been seeing more and more break in, making me worry about my collection.

Because of that, I have been moving more of my collection to a safe deposit box
at my bank.

I also have two gun safes, two mean dogs, video security system, and many
guns.

Based on some of the photos you've posted, GR58, it would take a couple of moving trucks to put a dent in your collection.

I use both bank deposit boxes and a big anchored safe. Here is a good app to have and use, I get the daily emailed incident reports to me, keep on the look out for crime waves in your neighborhood such as break-ins, robberies, etc.
