Default Pin with portraits

I just got this pin off Ebay. There is a photo of a Heer soldier and a Luft airman.


Any idea what the markings mean? It's well made. The portraits have a small glass dome over them.


Thanks,


Dan M

I have seen these pins - they were worn by grieving mothers and wives.

"DOUBLE" stands for Double-Gold - In English: rolled gold

Here is an example:
