Non-coated W-Nikkor?

I Have 2 Nikon lenses that appear to be uncoated. I've looked it up on Collectiblend and can only find my lenses in coated versions, with the 'C' suffix. What difference does that make, and which is more rare? I have this lens on my Rf http://collectiblend.com/Lenses/Nikon/50mm-f1.4-Nikkor-S.C-%28BM,-black%29.html

Mine has a chrome ring on the outside of it, and doesn't have the red C suffix. More or less rare (valuable) than the one pictured?
