Why would anyone want to slab a coin like this?

Even if it is one point less than perfect ... so what???

I have a few of these myself (different years and subjects, though) but I don't think I paid more than $2-$3 each for them. Now I think it's perfectly fine to collect these, but what is the "business sense" in paying $15 per coin to have it slabbed when the coin itself cannot possibly be worth more than $5? Of course, it might be a rare year or variety ... this seller has a few of these in slabs for sale ... you might want to check them out.

My guess that whomever slabbed them, received free voucher from NGC or something of that sort. I remember when you become a member, you can slab up to 5 coins for $100. Also, these were likely slabbed during the recent encapsulation craze!!! Makes no sense to me as well!
