    I need help about a thing.
    Could someone please explain what those ranks represent? Thanks a lot.

    I can never figure out German rank insignia when I'm watching war movies.

    The shoulder boards look somewhat similar to the ones on this wiki page described as "Senior non-commissioned specialist officers". The ones in wiki have symbols that indicate what the specialty is but yours do not.

    Ranks and insignia of the German Army (1935–1945) - Wikipedia

    No true knowledge, but a book or two.

    Left hand side: Oberleutnant, 80th Infantry Regiment
    Right hand side: SD Sturmscharführer

    At least, that's what they appear to represent.
    No comment on authenticity, other than there are a lot of repros of those SD straps on the briefest of Googles.

    I also checked Wikipedia but maybe because I am not native English speaker I couldn’t really understand something. Thank you very very much for your attention. :)

    Thank you so much sir. This was very important to me thank you soo much again. Could you please tell me their worth? I am going to buy it on online auction. Now it is 200 Turkish Liras (22 €) for both.

    I actually quite liked the ones on the left side. Can you at least tell if they look real or not? I am going to buy them from a trusted auction app, but in Turkey because they are not specialist even with my Wikipedia knowledge I can see they are selling repro products by mistake sometimes. This is why I am not sure. Can you tell please? Thank you! :)
