What is this Obersturmbannfuhrer wearing ?

Article about: I have never seen chains like these. The foto is kind of blurry, so you can't see what he is wearing on them. Do you know? Thanks.

    he is wearing a cheesy grin its an early pre war photo, although he"s not a gauleiter, could he be an equivelent to the town mayor? is there a date/name /place on the reverse? for any clues
    Unfortunately there is nothing on the back - not even his name. I have posted a lightened foto - maybe you can see the chains better.

    The man in the photograph is Richard Wendler. He wears the chain of office as Mayor of Hof. He was a member of the SD when this picture was taken, hence the blank collar tab
