Most any "positive setting" 16 size case with a male stem will work fine. The vast majority of "standard" 16 size cases are made as such, even if they also have a lever cut-out in them.
Avoid the late Hamilton 992/992E/992B cases as most of them are lever set only.

GrounchOldGuy...I second Ben's notion. Most any USA Made 16s case will accept your 956, although some are lever-set only. You might want to scout around for a case that had a Hamilton originally, so that the case screw marks will line up with your 956.
You may also be interested in knowing that quite a few folks like display cases that are signed...I have examples by Hamilton and Illinois, and I enjoy showing folks what these old pieces look like inside. Michael.
Good advice here. I'm a Hamilton guy at heart and like a display case but for a watch to be worn every day would prefer a regular case.
