Default Police? Shoulder Boards

Good day

These have me stumped.

1 - Mustardy yellow or faded gold coloured tresses on a red backing.
2 - Black central tresses with silver and black outer over carmine or rose red backings. Feuerschutzpolizei - Unterwachtmeister?
3 - Gold bullion and black outer tresses with navy or black with gold bullion inner tresses on red backing. Well made possible pre TR?
4 - Light green central tresses on a moss green backing.

Help!

Many thanks

I believe #3 may be Reichsbahn shoulder boards, though I defer to those whose knowledge is greater than my own!

Edit: Sorry Librarius 13, I missed that you also IDed #3!

Just for the sake of completeness:

The Reichsbahn boards are, respectively, for Beamte [officials] of pay groups 8, 7a and supernumerary officials of pay group 7 (# 1) and for officials of pay group 15 and supernumerary officials of pay group 14 (# 3).

The firefighter boards (# 2) are for the rank of Truppmann (1940) or Wachtmeister (1943).

The BGS board (# 4) is for the rank of Polizeiwachtmeister im BGS.

Concur on all fronts. The RB boards are some of my favorite civil insignia!
