Curator colleagues, I would appreciate input for reply to administrative request: "ballpark assessment of what it would take to replace...not what it cost to purchase...but what it would cost now to replace those items."

Equipment I can readily price, but how do herbaria currently approach content valuation for insurance purposes (irreplaceable specimens, books, etc.)?
