Going back to the collar tab question, I found a few more details for a basic overview that may help with questions.

The early tobacco & grey examples were for ranks of Wachtmeister to Revier-Oberwactmeister, these were discontinued in April 1941 (replaced w/silver). Silver was also used at the same time but for ranks of Hauptwachtmeister to Meister.

The early examples had the tobacco, grey, and silver 'bars' stitched to the base material, later on the silver and branch denoting color were one (see Schupo tabs in middle of below pic), and then with the introduction of the feldbluse a simplified collar tab was introduced (2nd picture).

I took a few quick pics of collar tabs I had readily available.
