Numbered to an Acting Ensign John W. Sanderson.
This MOLLUS medal is numbered to Acting Ensign John W. Sanderson, USN, No. “16620.” It comes in the original box with a grandchild’s handwriting on the inside lid.
We know little about Ensign Sanderson’s Civil War service. He held ranks as ensign, master, and junior lieutenant during his career.
The condition is excellent. Harder to find Navy MOLLUS medals.
