    The top two eagles are worn on the right arm of the NSKK uniform, except for members of NSKK Transport Todt and NSKK Transport Speer organizations serving outside the Reich who wore it on the left sleeve. The eagle with the chevron is for wear on the right sleeve of the standard uniform and the chevron indicates an Old Fighter or Alter Kampfer, a person who was a member before Hitler became Chancellor on 30 January, 1933. The cufftitle was worn on the left sleeve of the organization it indicates. The two small NSKK eagles are for a side cap and appear to be carmine back indicating the wearer was attached to the staff of the NSKK High Command The small eagle is for wear on the lapel of civilian clothing.

    I have spent little time studying the uniforms of the Reichsbahn. I am sure another member can help you. Sorry!

    Both are from the 1941 series of collar patches which identified the wearer's "rank" level.

    The left one is for officials of pay groups 17a through 12 [Beamte der Besoldungsgruppen 17a bis 12]. This model of collar patch (= rectangular patch with the insignia in vertical configuration) is for wear on the open-collared jackets.

    The right one is for officials of pay groups 11 through 8 and 7a [Beamte der Besoldungsgruppen 11 bis 8 und 7a]. This model (= slanting patch with insignia in horizontal configuration) is for wear on the closed-collared jackets.

    (The difference of metal devices vs. embroidered ones is of no particular significance. Collar patches with metal devices were used parallel to machine-woven and machine-embroidered ones on all levels. At least the higher ranks also wore hand-embroidered collar patches. By the way, the metal devices on the left one were originally gilt, but have lost their gilding.)
