Shield design similar to ID pins from the American Civil War. Meas. 1 3/8” x 1”.  “E. J. LANGFORD / MAY 13, 98” on sides, and “Co. K / 1st GA. VOL. INF. / SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR” in center. All letters are stamped. Appears to be silver and excavated. Reverse side is missing the pin portion of the fastening device.

Edward J. Langford was a resident of Savannah, GA. He enlisted as a Corporal in the 1st Georgia Volunteer Infantry at age 31 on May 2, 1898. Records show he was born in Quebec, Canada. His occupation is listed as Civil Engineer. He mustered in to service on May 13, 1898, the date on the badge. No muster our date is given.  Nice research project awaits!
