Can anyone identify these rank insignia? Were found with a group of CBI related items in an antique shop in Connecticut. Measure 7/8" by 2", mostly brass construction. Thanks for any help!

Nationalist chinese army it should be, i put only national, sorry about that boys. This identifcation can be found in Army badges and insignia of world war 2, (book 2), by guido rosignoli, a 1975 Macmillian color series book. The marron color is the branch color of their commissariat corps. Also in armed forces of world war II, by andrew mollo, a 1981 book,here in each section dealing with campaignes it has charts of the pertainant army/navy rank insignia,it also has a very interresting appendix, showing the word for each rank in the nations native language, its in a chart form and lines up across the page and down to the bottom of the page, giving the rank equvilent for each nation. Lieutant colonel in chinese= Chung hsiao
