D winder | "TICKA" | Semi-circle
The difference noted here in the standard "TICKA" variations are very minor.
The camera on the left should have a covering card like the camera in the middle. There are small notches that support the card which was glued into place. The camera on the right may also have had a card, but that is not conclusive and the semi-circular frame spaces the spring used for the shutter away from the rest of the camera. This would support a card but otherwise there is no discernable function of it.
The second feature is the film advance winder. The two cameras on the left have a D shape handle on the winder with small differences in the shape of the fitment. The winder on the camera on the right is a semi-circular and flatter handle.
The next on the lens column (what would be the winder on a pocket watch) has a slightly different shape whether by design (for different right angle finders) or by variations in manufacturing is not certain.
