    Description

    Attractive and Rare Jeweler-marked Sixth Corps Badge worn by a Gosline's Zouave. This particularly nice sheet silver badge was worn by Corporal Emmanuel Cox, Co. I, 95th Pa. Vols. His name, "E. Cox," is engraved on a scroll at the top beneath which is suspended by a chain a Sixth Corps badge having engraved "Co./ I/ 95"/ P.V.V." on the arms. In the center is etched a smaller Sixth Corps badge which may have onetime been filled with red wax. The reverse of the scroll is clearly stamped by the maker "J. Somerset/ Philada" and the corps insignia is similarly marked "Philada/ Somerset." Cox enlisted in this famed regiment in September 1861 and saw action that included the Peninsula, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. He later reenlisted as a Veteran Volunteer and subsequently transferred to the Veteran Reserve Corps. Overall, the badge measures over 1" x 2" and is missing only its t-bar pin fastener. Such historic badges with a connection to a zouave unit are especially desirable, and exceptionally rare when bearing a maker's mark. Complete with service records.
