Muut tiedot

Presidents, often upon recommendation from the Secretary of State, formally acknowledged foreigners who displayed extraordinary courage by rescuing Americans at sea. The recognition typically took the form of a finely engraved gold pocket watch or binoculars, symbolizing the nation's gratitude. These watches, often featuring the Seal of the President of the United States, were personalized with the recipient's name and the reason for the award. The first of these pocket watches were given by Abraham Lincoln and continued to be given out until the end of the 19th century. This pocket watch was given in 1867 by the American president Andrew Johnson to Captain Hans Dahlberg.
