Photo of the second coin, courtesy of Don Dool, is an interesting later copper casting or a would-be 1475 Wiener Neustadt kreuzer. No official Wiener Neustadt coins appear to have been struck in 1475, certainly not in copper. I have seen few 1472 coins and it's possible that the coin was cast from a die having a reversed "2".

I admit to being at a loss as to why a larger and heavier coin was struck as the "Half Spitzgroschen" (a less fine silver used in it accounts for the larger weight and size), but alas it is. Saurma, however has them opposite of what I show here and what one would assume is more "correct". Until I have a more authoritative answer I'll go with the consensus for now. Full spitzgroschens are frequently available at larger German auctions. Half spitzgroschens are much less commonly seen in the catalogues.

Sold at Lanz 107, $150, note the small flower in the upper right quadrant. Compare the fine workmanship on this die to the following variant, also the modern form of 7 rather than the earlier .

Sold at Lanz 122, $360, this variety also has a normal '8' but is much cruder overall than the examples above and below.

* The Brabant Double Briquet of 1472 probably does not exist. Gelder-Hoc does not mention it and the coin has not been seen.
** This was never really used as a circulating coin, but more as a medal. It was certainly never called a "thaler" but Frey lists is as such anyway.
*** Frey stated that he thought this coin unique, but Levinson estimates 11-20 are available (R2 rarity)
