If you're talking about the soldier's, right hand trouser pocket, I'm pretty sure that's a pocket watch fob.

Brian this is my only USMC related photo and that is somewhat tenuous having only one Marine, still an interesting photo. The others photographed have MAC on their insignia, an academy I assume. The cup is stamped Naval Brigade Cup and the plaque looks to be NRA. The man in the civilian clothing is a Major Masters.

Kurt, thanks for sharing your only USMC image!

 

Here's a couple new insignificant pre-WW I (?) photos taken in an unknown tropical location.

 

Three unidentified Marines and a couple of dead alligators (or possibly crocodiles?) … Any guesses as to the location?
