 I am sorry may be wrong area to post this? But looks like a white and blue diamond? Any Ideas on this one? Thanks!

 

I have the same one, but didn't get a clue about the unit. Possibly 317th Infantry. Do you have a name or a ASN of the soldier who owned it.

I am going to try and trace it back. It was a local auction buy, The town is of about 600 people so someone may know more about it. I will post if I find out anything.  Side note: the only markings on the inside is the ZF 51 lot number. Thanks!

The Insignia is that for the Supply Coy, 318th Infantry. After some little research I found CPL STAUBER Anton Peter, ASN: 2828342, HQ Coy, 318th Infantry, prior his service with the 80th Division he was in Coy I, 344th Inf, 86th Division. Prior the 3rd Phase of the Meuse Argonne Offensive, beginning at 01-Nov-1918, the 80th received many replacements from the Depot Divisions. Born 04-Feb-1894, in Milwaukee, WI, he passed away in August 1969 and is buried in Milwaukee WI.
