It all boils down to preference. Which one would you rather have? You're going to be its new owner.
I agree with Nolan5000 but from a pure value standpoint, it's a difficult choice. It doesn't help that the OPG on this one is confusing, because it lists the '55 5.5 graded value at $160 est. which is LESS than the raw value of $210 est. The 56 value both raw and graded for a 7 is $175.

Personally, I need the 55 for my set, but there is something to be said for having a nice mid 50's NM 7 in your collection. If not building a 55 set, I would probably go with the 56 with those grade choices.
