<<  Frassanito originally describes the square object on the blouse/coat in the picture as possibly being the diamond insignia of the third corps. In his second book, with the discovery of a new angle on the picture, he hedges his bet a little, saying it could also be a piece of hardtack or a cartridge box. >>

It appears to be a tin cartridge box insert.  They held the rounds inside the cartridge box.
