This is a very common date, but I am having trouble locating a 1956 Gem BU Lincoln Cent slabbed by NNC (National Numismatic Certification). I purchased a set from a dealer, but this Philidelphia Mint date was missing. The dealer said he was not aware the coin was missing from the set, and could not locate it. He did not have another one, so I just let it go. It is a minor thing, but I would like to find the slab to complete the set. I am hoping someone has an extra one. I only asked that the coin is Gem BU Red and slabbed by NNC. I could stick a PCGS slab in there, but then the set would look funny. Thanks. :)

With all due respect NNC slabs are considered basement slabs. that's not to say there aren't some nice coins in nnc slabs. Not sure what set you are talking about, but a ste of coins in PCGS or NGC, and possibly ANACS would be considered better my most.

Completely agree. A set of high-grade NNC late date LWCs would have little value in the open market.

Maybe if the OP sends one to NNC they will slab it.

Yeah , After you get your 56 NNC slab then consider PCGS OR NGC for your future coins . most of us don't care for NNC because they profusely overgrade .

To be very honest, I paid what you would expect to pay for ungraded BU Red Lincoln Wheats from this time period (1940 to 1958 PDS). They are very common. I am not a big fan of slabs myself, but the set contained nice coins graded mostly MS-68 Red by NNC, and they were only $1 each. Currently, I have an ungraded coin filling the hole for the missing 1956 in a standard slab, but I would like to have one in a NCC holder for esthetic reasons.

I know some of you are coin dealers, so I was hoping someone might accidentally have a 1956 Lincoln Cent in an NNC holder sitting in your discount box. I have seen several Lincoln Cents in NNC holders in $1 boxes at the coin shows I attend, but none dated 1956 (Plain). I found a 1956-D, but not the Philadelphia Mint. If someone comes across one in a cheap lot you purchased, and you do not want it, let me know. I would like to have it.

I could send the coin I have to be graded by NNC, but that would be a waste of money as you have all stated. That is assuming the company still exist. I thought I read they went out of business, but I do not know for sure. I just want everything to match in my set otherwise I would not even care.

Thanks for answering. :)

I wouldn't worry about a "matching" set of NNC slabs. Their slabs are worthless in the retail market and provide no "added value". Personally, I'd break them all out and put them into AirTite holders.....assuming they are even worthy of that.

Worse case, you're looking at $10.75 shipped to have a coin graded by them if it comes to that. If you do, be sure to ask if the slab will match what you have.

This. And when I see a coin in an NNC slab, it raises red flags for me about the coin's condition/originality. I'm not likely to touch it online and I'd want it out of the holder in person.

I think everyone is missing the point. pasasap seems to understand perfectly well that NNC slabs add no value. He simply has a set in those slabs that he likes and is missing that one matching coin. That would make my eye twitch as well. This one isn't about value or anything else. Its simply about OCD.

Just checking to see if anyone has a 1956 Lincoln Cent Gem BU Red slabbed by NNC. I still cannot find one, and the set looks funny without one. I really do not want to pay $20 for a 1956 Wheat penny just to fill the hole. Let me know if anyone has one. Thanks.

The missing cent was probably the only one that was close to the label grade and has been sold.

If only NNC had a population report that would let you know how good your chances of finding a replacement might be.
