What is this for? 1. Garde crest

Recommended Posts

So I was digging through some of the items I have about and came across this.  It appears to be a 1. Garde zu Fuss crest with a couple of attachment points.  Could it be a an officer's pickelhaube emblem?

I know of them worn on the arm for Btn Lichterfelde 15 RW Brig,  which I have noted as being a Freikorps garde sleeve badge prior. That may be slightly garbled from the source comments made on a photo a man showed of his grandfather wearing it, otherwise appearing to be a standard 1918 soldier photo. I  am sure someone can explain it more fully. Hopefully that gives you something to start with.
