Government officials (italics above) wore gold buttons and insignia with the Prussian eagle in the headgear.

Employees of state and private mining enterprises wore silver buttons and insignia with crossed tools in the headgear.

This is really interesting stuff. Excellent post. I'm curious when did miners start wearing uniforms? Also were these only for ceremonial occasions or did management officials wear uniforms on a regular basis.

The mining uniform goes back at least to the 18th century, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miner%27s_habit

When Germany ceded Silesia to Poland after WW2, the tradition was maintained in Poland. http://am_wb1.republika.pl/W6_tradycja/images/05-01-mundur_galowy.jpg

In DDR the uniform was reintroduced in 1950.

The rank insignia system was regulated in 1976:

I don't know if the uniform was in daily use. The Prussian uniform look like it could of, while the full dress versions certainly must have been worn only at special occasions.
