    It's actually "RFV" Reichsfinanzverwaltung" Financial Administration...It's basically a Customs Shoulderboard. I'm not familiar with the other one, but I suspect it's fire dept...?

    The left shoulder board has nothing to do with the RSD, or the SS for that matter. The cyphers say "RFV" for "Reichsfinanzverwaltung" [National Fiscal Administration]. It's a customs shoulder board for an official ranked Zollbetriebsassistent.

    The right one is a Fire Brigade shoulder board for the rank of Oberfeuerwehrmann, redesignated Obertruppmann in 1938.

    I cannot comment on value.
