Android text thread contact number error

After trying to find an answer to this for months I decided to make a post. After converting my contacts from my old Windows Mobile Phone to a Note 3 I have exactly one contact with an issue. The issue is only in the text thread and is a problem when I try to send a text to the contact from the preexisting thread. The contact number at the top of the screen (below the name) has a letter in front of the number for some reason. The letter is not present if I go into the contact or if I export the address book to a spreadsheet through Gmail or Microsoft Live. I tried deleting the contact from Gmail and Live to see if it will start a new thread or fix the error, but it does not. The issue is not present when I create a new text to send to the contact so long as I am not doing it from the preexisting thread, but then everything ends up in the preexisting thread instead of a new thread.

Hopefully someone here can walk me through a backdoor way of editing a text thread to fix this issue with the random letter in front of the contact's number so I can have regular text conversations with this contact without deleting the entire thread and message history.

Is there a moderator that is able to help guide me in the right direction if this should be posted somewhere else?

From the stickies I think this should be moved to Q&A. If I'm reading this right... Have you exported the text thread? That may clean up the database of bad characters. Also search your Gmail contacts for stray data. There might be some oddball associations that need to be deleted or merged.

Help!
I really could use some advice on this matter as I am yet to find a solution. If this thread needs to be moved is there a way to move the thread without making a new one?
