    For some reason, it appears a lot older than WWI to me.
    Knights Templar, or some other Fraternal/Masonic
    group........?

    The reason I think it is not WWI German is the shape
    of the bones and the offset eye sockets.........

    Hi Josh, WW1 is not my specialist subject. But I have never seen one like this before, so I cannot advise.

    He is an odd looking little fellow!

    115th Inf Reg was a part of the 29th Division.

    I'm a new member here and this is an interesting emblem so I will offer my thoughts on it for my first post.

    The skull and bones symbol was almost exclusively used during the Imperial Era by troops from Brunswick (Infantry and Cavalry) and to a lesser degree, Hanover. The most famous users of the skull and bones emblem being Braunschweigisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr.92 who used this emblem on their Feldmutzen and Pickelhauben. It may be one of theirs. It does not look like the Husaren emblem used by the Braunschweigisches Husaren-Regiment Nr.17 or the Husaren-Regiment Königin Wilhelmena der Niederlande (Hannoversches) Nr.15 so I vote for Infantry Regiment 92 from Braunsweig (Brunswick).

    Hope this is helpful.
