I would imagine its a standard pin-on metal WH breast eagle which was intended for the white summer tunic.

What about a Cossack headquarters sleeve patch worn along with a Sonderverband 288 sleeve patch?

That combination would be "to good to be true " in modern times! (basically unbelievable)

Looks like he used a Allgemeine SS jacket for his Panzer walking out...I would rather have his AG wrapper.

Would you think this flight blouse had been messed with by an amature? (no, the photo isn't reversed)

I would say the cossack photo has been doctored, when you get in close it looks like it has been pasted on the image. At that scale it is very easy to do.
