US Navy Civil War Medal # 1785, rim engraved “Dennis O’Brien” # “USS Osceola and Iosco”. The Osceola and Iosco were both gunboats that were commissioned in 1864. Both ships participated in the two attacks on Fort Fisher in 1864 and 1865. It’s rare to find a USN Civil War that’s engraved on the rim with two ships.
O’Brien’s naval service is unresearched.
