    Eric-
    Your form of eagle is the first pattern worn on the NSKK feldmutze. The second pattern was larger and not encountered often. The second pattern eagle was likely only worn by officer ranks as I have never encountered an example on an other ranks feldmutze.
    The construction of all of the first pattern are identical to the best of my knowledge. I am posting pictures of both forms on caps.

    is this a Staffelführer and what area does the color of the eagle signify?

    William, you got your answer about the rank at WAF.
    Here you show a Obersturmführer (three pips and a braid).
    The color is for Südwest. All is explained in volume 4 from "Headgear of
    Hitler's Germany"!!

    The ones from BoB with four pips: Staffelführer (Angolia/Littlejohn is not correct);
    one braid and two pips: Obertruppführer.
