An argument could be made that since the reverse die has a G.A.R Grand Army of the Republic badge that it is a fraternal medal and should not be included as a So-Called Dollar. Originally included by Hibler & Kappen in the 1963 edition, the authors opted to leave it in as well, considering it more a centennial celebration medal than a G.A.R. related event. Engraved by Key. This particular medal has a clamp attached.
