    It is the cap from a fraternity in a university. I do not know which one.

    According to a list at Wikipedia the emblem could be from the 'Burschenschaft Normannia zu Leipzig' or its sibling organisation 'Burschenschaft Normannia-Leipzig zu Marburg'. Both were founded in 1868 and they are still existing.

    I think it was given as a Christmas gift from one member of the fraternity to another in 1932, but I am not really positive on that one.
