    The white arrow should be upside down, above this is written "oben", which means above.
    THere are no numbers!

    This is not a Supreme Department armband, but rather a Kreisleitung -which is for a District Level. The White Piping indicates it belonged to a Department Leader.
    Let's get it all sorted out:

    The colored edge piping identifed the level of appointment: Blue for Ortsgruppen-, white (as seen here) for Kreisleitung-, red for Gauleitung- and yellow for Reichsleitung level.

    A complex system of golden stripes, oak leaves, pipings and pips identified the actual duty position. In this case, it is Leiter eines Hauptamtes, which translates as "head of a main office" (although it is really preferrable to stick with the original German terms, as many don't translate well).

    Not all duty positions existed on all levels; this one, for example, was used from the Kreis level upwards.

    HPL2008 is quite correct: it is a complex system as the armbands, known as Dienststellungsabzeichen,
    goes along with the Dienstrangabzeichen (colar patches). Here is the list of armbands for KREISLEITUNG
    as according order 27/39 and published for many districts as Rundschreiben Nr. 14 from July 18, 1939.
    It goes along with the ranking system as enclosed (in color).
