    Not sure what it represents but it appears to be connected to the Knights of Columbus.

    The General George A. Custer Commandery No.385, Knights of Malta, was located in Buffalo, New York. It appears to have been most active in the 1910-1915 period.  This would be a lodge membership badge.

    A number of fraternal organizations with Masonic connections use the “In Hoc Signo Vinces” [In this sign he conquers] motto.

    This is a Malta Jewel, for this particular Commandery. Not all the Cmdy’s used the standard Type Jewel, that we are use to seeing. IE; the one a lot of people mistake for a GAR Death Badge, (It most defiantly isn’t)
