The "PID" is the model number.

PID: Product ID (AKA Model Number)
VID: Version ID
SN: Serial Number

Phil PhillipsDirector of DevOps & Quality AssuranceCommented:
Ahh, I see what you're saying now.

The last letter signifies the type of image installed on the switch.

For example, WS-C3850-24P-L, WS-C3850-24P-E and WS-C3850-24P-S are identical hardware-wise. 'L" is the LAN base image, "E" has the enhanced image installed, while "S" has the standard image installed.  The enhanced image enables some extra features, but also requires licensing.

For the 3850 Series, there is a universal image for IOS. So, you can download the image for either -E, -S, or -L (they are the same!). The switch itself should have a unique license file built-in that enforces the features that are enabled.
