How much of a premium do MJ inserts usually command over the same book in the same grade??

My take is the conversation starts getting interesting with high pop key's.   MJ's, and newsstand variants start getting pulled out from the herd for a price bump.

I've noticed some pretty good bumps in books that are higher grade with inserts as well. Which makes sense, the MJ inserts are hard enough to find, but finding them inside a key or high grade copy is even more rare.

After competing for and buying hundreds of jeweler variants, I agree.  The key issues seem to get a serious price bump.  The jeweler and NDS inserts can also make an otherwise unsellable comic book sellable.  It gets really weird is when two or more jeweler fanatics compete for a jeweler variant that none of them have, but really want.  I saw a non-key Justice League of America 107 in gvg condition sell for around $100 because neither one of us fanatics had it in our collection.  I lost out on that one.  The seller would have a hard time getting $3 for that comic book if not for the jeweler insert.

This is a recent pick up, and a semi-key book, since it is the first appearance of Lucien (though not noted on the CGC label).

GCD has the on-sale date of Tales of Ghost Castle #1 as February 4th compared to this issue on February 20th.  But since it was monthly when Ghost Castle was bi-monthly it does have the earlier cover date.

That’s definitely odd. I wonder if there was a problem that led to Weird Mystery 18 being delayed, because the page in WM announces that Tales of Ghost Castle will be on sale February 6th. If it was planned to be release on the 20th, logic would dictate that it would say “on sale now”.
