Dear Mr. Pohler,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 7 series related to medals in the 1910s and 1920s in the Records of the U.S. Mint (Record Group 104) that may contain some relevant information. We also located the series Records of Coupons for Victory Liberty Loans of 3 3/4 Percent, 1923 and the series Records of Coupons for Victory Liberty Loan of 4 3/4 Percent, 1926-1930 in the Records of the Treasurer of the United States (Record Group 50) that might be of interest to you. Plus, we located 7 series related to Liberty Loans in the Records of the Bureau of the Public Debt (Record Group 53) that may be useful. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at firstname.lastname@example.org for access to and information about these records.
Next, we located 16 additional series related to medals in the 1910s and 1920s in Record Group 104 at the National Archives in Philadelphia (RE-PA) that may contain some information related to your research. The series Records of Orders of Medals, 8/1919-10/1920, for example, lists the orders for die casting and engraving of medals for individual clients by the Engraving Department of the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia, and it contains information about the types of medals and number of medals that were ordered. These records have not been digitized. Please contact RE-PA at email@example.com for access to and information about these records.
