Hello Arantxa ;

From the left ; A patch of Luftwaffe NCO Oberfeldwebel/Oberfähnrich ( Cadet), kragenspiegel ( Collar Patch for German Army )*,
a Luftwaffe breast eagle on the portrait, a pair of shoulder boards Hauptmann rank ( Luftwaffe or Army ), below other
kragenspiegel *, and a Luftwaffe collar patch for Hauptmann ( Captain ) rank.
I can't determine exactly the waffenfarbe of the last patch; if it's deep-red ( Anti-aircraft troops and Air Force artillery ),
or if it's a carmine colour ( officers in general staff service )

* If orange colour ( Military Police ), or golden-yellow for Cavalry/Reconnaissance

The correct identification is a pair of Police Gendarmier officer's collar tabs (silver litzen on orange), a single Luftwaffe collar tab for flight troops or paratroopers- oberfeldwebel- (yellow tab with 4 gulls); a portrait photo of a Luftwaffe enlisted man with a breast eagle included; a single Luftwaffe Hauptmann Flak troops collar tab; and a pair of Captain's shoulder blades (Hauptmann)- could be Von Thoma's list or could be Police officers.... Need photo of bottoms.

Realistic value for everything is around $100.00 to $150.00 tops.... Nothing really rare or that desirable.....
