Yes, he was naturalized. Look at the petition page that you have a link to. In the middle of the page it has a section Order of Court Admitting Petitioner. Here it states that he was admitted as a citizen on 12 Apr 1923. Also at the bottom of the page it has his certificate of naturalization # and the date of the certificate (12 Apr 1923). The actual certificates were given to the new citizen and copies do not appear in the naturalization records.
Thanks, that has been confusing to me also.

Dear Mr. Dragnic,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you review NARA’s Naturalization Records website for an overview of the naturalization process and to better understand your great grandfather’s online documents.
Certificates of citizenship were issued by the Federal courts until October 1991 when INS took over responsibility for naturalization proceedings. All INS records are now overseen by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). USCIS maintains duplicate copies of court records (including the certificate of citizenship) created since September 27, 1906. You may request your great grandfather’s documents through the USCIS Genealogy Program.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Thank you so much for your help!
