The DDT is a double diode triode for detection and first AF amplifier in superhet receivers. It was introduced in 1933 and the data-sheet makes it clear that it was intended for Automatic Volume Control (now called AGC) and explains how to use the diodes.
The reverse is plain zinc paint.
The classic envelope is 45 mm in diameter and, excluding the B7 base pins, is 106 mm tall.
