Not "Metal" - Medal No. 23357 is not available on the rolls - there is a gap between No. 23251 to No. 23500

If that was the one from the Cowan auction its very likely Capt. Marshall Scudders as the group did contain several engraved veterans badges of his along with the Spanish War Service. The fact that it is an 'No.' and happened to be in the missing swath of numbers shouldn't disuade you as long as the group stays together. He was the Captain of Co. E, 1st Washington (State) Volunteer Infantry and served in the early Philippine war with the regiment. He along with the company are in photographs from the state version of Campaigning In The Phillipines.

Another good indicator that this unattributed No. medal was his would be to review the entire No. list of recipients and not see another medal # issued to him.

Well that first upload - my first - didn't go so OK as I couldn't remove the oversize file before edit time expired. But there you go. Its from Campaigning In The Phillipines. The photo is from their souvenir roster and reception upon return to Seattle. The 8th corps badge he is wearing in the photo may well be the one that was engraved and in the group.
