    首都职工革命造反总部革命造反者第_号

    Does anyone know what this says or means? Or for that matter what it is, looks like an arm band to me.

    Thanks much!

    It seems to be something in cultural revolution, a political movement (interpret it as destroying or civil war) in 1960s-1970s China.

    Yes. It has to be a band of the Cultural Revolution era, in which years "rebel" was set as a righteous thing to do according to Chairman Mao's direction.
    Check out "cultural revolution" and "red guard".
