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!
Hello everyone, I have continued the research about my great-grandfather and I found one more clue. I found his WWI Draft registration card where it shows some additional information about him. I was wondering if anyone is able to read this part where his permanent home address is written? I am pretty sure that County is Silver Bow, and State is Montana, but the text before that I am not able to read. I attached the image below. I know I'm maybe boring and asking for too much But I was wondering if someone could help me with advice where could I possibly find his addresses during his life in America. From what I know he lived in America from 1904 to 1929. He lived in Washington State and I see that he worked in Montana and maybe somewhere else also but I don't know. Thank you so much for your help!

Ancestry.com has Frank in the 1907 Helena City Directory. There are other Dragnich in other years that may be related to Frank. (You need a subscription, or see if your local library allows you access with a library card.) I didn't see any directories on there for the area of Washington you need. You could look elsewhere for some.
This may be him:
1910 Census for Frank E Dranch in McLaughlin, Stevens, Washington

1920 Census for Frank Dragnich in San Poil, Ferry, Washington
Newspapers may also help you.
Thank you so much Grace that was really helpful!
1920 census is him for sure because he was in th same household with his cousins who continued their lives in the United States.
Not sure about 1907 because his last name is misspelled, but that is very close to the area where he lived in 1918 so that could make sense.
The person from 1910, I don't think that is him but thanks for sharing with me.
I will definitely look for more on the ancestry, because on familysearch and fold3, I believe I found everything about him.
