Default FJ Pilots Shoulder boards Original or Post War?

I picked these shoulder boards from an estate sale and wondering if these are original, post war or reproduction? Thank you for your help!

A bit more detail:

The Unteroffizier boards are of pre-1945 manufacture.

The Leutnant boards with the 'shiny' aluminium are East German.

The Leutnant boards with the subdued tops are very likely of recent manufacture.
