The following West Virginia State Historical websites list hundreds of names of soldiers who have unclaimed Civil War
medals:

"In 1866, the state of West Virginia authorized the minting of over 26,000 medals to honor its Union Civil War
soldiers. Today, over 4,000 medals remain unclaimed."

I found the following soldier's name. Perhaps one of his descendants will see this and can make a claim for the medal:

Abshier, Allen; G; 1st Reg Vet Inf Vol
