    Hi Bob, I showed my Reichsbahndirektionen eagle here. The quoted value of $30 is about right.

    I've know people to collect these specifically. Like anything else, there are dozens of these as each city or regional area had a Reichsbahndirection. Desireable versions are from the occupied areas.

    Here's some info Railway divisions in Germany - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I have read here somewhere it was worn by staff. It was worn by ALL
    assigned to the specific Reichsbahndirektion.
