On the reverse is stamped "J. Somerset/Philada" on the scroll and "Philada/Somerset" on the suspension. The maker was Jacob Somerset, listed in the 1865 Philadelphia City Directory as a maker of "Masonic and Army Badges." The badge was worn by Corp. Emanuel Cox of Co. I. He enlisted in September, 1861, reenlisted in the field in December, 1863 and was hospitalized at the time the unit was mustered out in July, 1865.
