ELI5: How to Sell or Trade BitCoin Without Getting Scammed

Hi.. I've used the search, but haven't gotten a satisfactory answer. Here's the story:
I have a VERY minimal understanding of bit coins. People mine them or what have you.. I get that much... Someone I was friends with gave me physical bitcurrency (is that a word?) called a Casascius coin as a gift a year or two ago, and I forgot about it until recently (hearing all the craze).
I don't know how to spend it though! Some people say I need a wallet and some people say I don't. Some recommend I sell on Craigslist or Ebay, but plenty of people say I'll be scammed (if I mail it, the buyer may claim they never received it, and Paypal will invariably side with the buyer, refund the money, and I get nothing). It has a number on the back, and I'm not even sure if I can show it to people to verify its authenticity (I learned last night that there is a website that does this)!
Some of the people over at bitcoin have sent me some snarky messages, and others have been nice, but I'm confused.
Can someone explain how to actually USE it, because I'm a bitcoin idiot. Sorry.
Edit: I just have a question, and I'm down voted, but I don't understand why. If this is the wrong place for this, I apologize. I'll take it down and ask somewhere else if you can recommend a better subreddit, but bitcoin kind of expects you to know what you're talking about, and I don't really have an answer aside from ”don't use Ebay”.
