This USS New York Good Conduct is dated about 8 months after Dick's posted above, and is definitely a different layout and I believe a different hand. Rundquist and Rosloof most certainly knew each other, being shipmates and fellow New Yorkers.   Note that Dick's Good Conduct engraving has an interesting facet, it seems to say "New Yory"

Hermanus & Gerradtgrant:

 

       Originally, the Sampson Medal was issued to a limited number of ships who participated in a limited amount of actions from May to August 1898; the basic engagement was indicated on the back of the medal. They were generally simple medals with a top ship bar however some had extra bars, indicating multiple actions, hung by links  from the ship's bar. Those are what are now called the "Phase I" medals because other ships which were in the area subsequently asked that their service be recognized. From that request the list of  ships (and actions) was expanded; those are now known as  "Phase II" issues. A third round occurred when Phase I awardees asked that those actions of Phase II be recognized. That request resulted in the addition of the extra bars and those are what is currently called "Phase III" Sampsons. .

This is an outstanding group! As I also collect New York Naval Militia this is really special to me.  The Yankee Sampson should be a Phase II.
