Can someone identify the distinctive features of the 'Telge', the 'Carniol' and the other versions of this medal?

Another one with the dates engraved, currently for sale on Okazii.

Hallo Gentlemen, :D

technically the dates are not engraved, but hand stamped into the medal.

The reason for this version, I am told is a few hundred of the earlier versions were produced with a design flaw (missing dates and word MELE) so the factory decided to hand stamp them, rather than send them back to be melted down.

judging by the style of "court-mounting" ribbon I believe this came off a German Ribbon bar.

"P. TELGE" Military Variant.

Number 2 :-
