Question About GAR Medal Numbers (No Letter Prefix?)

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired a GAR medal that has a serial number, but no letter prefix. I seem to recall that all medals had serial numbers with a letter prefix that corresponded with the first letter of the last name of the commander of the GAR at the time the medal was made if my memory serves me right. Has anyone seen a medal that has a serial number with no letter prefix? If so, does it mean anything?

I don't recall seeing any with no prefix, but it could be a simple manufacturing problem where the letter punch wasn't set correctly. In any case, not traceable.
