  Navy Good Conduct Medal
The 1948 Navy Awards Manual states that award of the Navy Good Conduct Medals technically began in 1865 when all enlisted men receiving honorable discharges were authorized to wear a fouled anchor on the left sleeve to be called "the honorable discharge badge." A star was to be added for each additional honorable discharge.
This style medal was issued in very limited quantities between 1880 and 1884, probably to fewer than 500 sailors as the Bureau continued to issue the "Nickel Cross" during this period to deplete existing stocks.
The meaning of good conduct was defined for captains by requiring the grading of sailors in specific categories such as seamanship and gunnery.

I know the U.S. Army Good Conduct Medal is a rather boring subject and I've had many, many WWII Army GCM's through my hands over the years.
From what I've encountered and owned, all were unengraved or machine stamped medals, so can any of the WWII U.S. medal collector's tell me when the Army quit the practice of officially engraving the Good Conduct Medal during the war?
Dad was one of the countless victims of the Great Depression and was extremely tight with his money his entire life, so I'm certain he wouldn't have spent a dime to have it done privately.
