    I am in possession of a variation of the US Army Good Conduct Medal that was not listed in the excellent article by Col. Fred Borch (March-April 2000 issue of JOMSA).

    This variation was, as best I can determine, manufactured by CORO Inc. under a contract issued in 1944. This variation of the GCM is a slot brooch pin clasp with a ring suspension on the pendant. The ring is on a small post such that it is slightly raised from the pendant.

    The Type 1 AGCM with the ring suspension has the ring connected directly to the pendant. The pendant is unnumbered.

    I am wondering how many of this variation of the GCM were manufactured.

    Any info on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

    And I was finally able to locate a picture of the blue box with the white end label for the Coro, Inc. produced Army Good Conduct Medal (see attached). This contract was valued at $86,000, and the period of production was May through December, 1944.
