Hi j-c!
Chuck Anderson here!

I'm closing-in on the specific information you want, but in the meantime there's an illustrated section on the NKVD that I found, that looks like they have political officers ranks in some of the illustrations.

This particular site is:........

M35 & M37 NKVD Uniforms

I'll keep looking for the specific material you want! See ya'! Ciao!!

NKVD before WWII ( and to 1943) has another rank system unique to this troup.
Red Army "komissars" worn rank insignia (i.e. collar patches to 1943) in arms color (i.e. rapsberry red with black border for infantry etc.) with normal officers rank insignia (rhomboids etc.). Difference from "commanders" was no chevrons on sleeves & use of red stars on both elbows. No collar insignia of arms!
Ranks were:
mladshiy polititruk (polischeskiy rukovodit'el (from 1937)
politruk
starhiy polititruk
batail'onnyy komissar
polkovoy komissar

Brigadnyy kommissar
Diviznyy komissar
Korusnoy komissar
Armeyskiy komissar
