What does this small metal object next to a grave indicate?

This is a grave marker for a veteran of the Civil War. It meant that the person belonged to an auxillary chapter (#20) of the Sons of Union Veterans.

Always photograph any flag or organization markers when you photograph your ancestors graves!
