I have never seen this before (currently on eBay):


Type 1 had the "big head", while type 2 had the smaller head. Type 1 also came in a swivel crown version. I will try to find mine and post pics of all three.

Swivel crown is not accurate-the crown is loose, not firmly affixed-Variants L to R:
Big Head, loose crown
Big Head, fixed small crown and small swds
Small Head, loose crown
Small Head, loose crown, Resch marked
I assume there is a Small Head, fixed crown version

I have 2 other variations of medal #3 in your example. Small head loose crown.
Directly below the head at the bottom of the medal, one example has one dot ( Ferdinand . Romaniei ) , the second example has 2 dots ( Ferdinand .. Romaniei ). A period between the words Ferdinand an Romaniei.

Here are two "non-military" medals . The first one has the regular size of the " Medalia Ferdinand" , the second one has 49 mm in diameter. The most peculiar think is that the big one is signed "Ileana 1927". Since today I never seen on other medals this signature.

Where is the signature? Is the reverse of the table medals identical to that of the wearable medals?

No for the big medal there is no reverse , the small one is identical with the Medalia Ferdinand.

I saw several of the small ones before. However, all of them were well-worn, and i considered them to be damaged wearable medals.
