Estimated market value:
Certain career/role insignia were worn by specialist soldiers performing certain unique tasks. All ranks below Lieutenant could qualify for these specialist trades.
The time of introduction varied greatly between the different insignia.
Since 1939, NCO insignia came with a silver-coloured band around the edges.
Signals Operators (Nachrichtenpersonal) wore a bolt of lightning on an oval dark blue-green backing. The colour varied depending on the branch of the wearer. It was worn on the upper left sleeve.
