I bought one from Agena 2-3 months ago and it did have the bolt case.

Fwiw - the eyepiece has yellow lettering - i have heard the current production Meade Plossls have white lettering so i don't know if that includes the 56mm. The comments i've read here on CN were about white lettering on 1.25" Meade Plossls.

Or it could be Meade has not made any 56mm in a while as they've had sufficient stock.

I got mine last month and Agena included the bolt case free. Two days from SoCal to NorCal via USPS.

I don't know about Meade including a bolt case from the factory or not, but Agena includes their own aftermarket bolt case at no charge with all eyepieces they sell.  If you buy from another company, such non-factory bolt cases may not be included.

Recently bought a Meade 12.4mm super plossl off ebay and there was just a box ... other eyepieces I've gotten from Agena Astro have the free bolt case.

I bought the same EP from AgenaAstro Friday and they included a case with the order - no charge.

I think you will find Agena throws the bolt case in themselves not the ep company !
