    Default shoulder boards at local estate sale - ID? Value?

    There is an estate sale this week that has three shoulder boards that look German military - can someone ID these and place a value? The one on the left looks like one in another recent thread that was described as -

    "They are pre-February 1941 pattern shoulder boards from the Deutsche Reichsbahn [German National Railways], worn by Beamte der Besoldungsgruppen 9a und 9 [officials of pay groups 9a and 9]. "

    The estate has US uniform of the 1st Infantry division.

    Thanks
    Joe

    The image is fairly poor. The one on the left is as you thought Reichsbann. The middle board appears to be Forestry. I can not see enough of the one on the right to identify it.

    Yep, they are German alright. Middle one looks forestry to me as well. Right one looks like some kind of Heer shoulder board.
