The last one is definietly not a kappenabzeichen. It is a so-called "War Door-nail" (Hadi Ajtószeg in Hungarian). 

It vended by the War Relief Comission.

Once I saw it in original position in a local parish, nailed to the door post (and covered by 100 years paint layers).

 

The second pin is something Bavarian. See the so-called Raupenhelm on the top, and the flags with the typical Bavarian lozenge pattern.

Hello Markgraf , The two little holes at the sides of the piece carried me to think in a kappenabzeichen .surely is bigger in size than a cap badge. Regarding to the pin ,yes is Bavarian as you says . the raupenhelm carries the L cypher ,and the lion and lozenge patterned flags complete the identification .but what represents ? a backpack topped with the helm , lances ,sabres ,trumpets, crossed cannons ,over cannonballs, flags and strangely one lion , no regimental number .
