Have 2 coins, from 2 dealers, bt many years ago, that appear same but are labeled slightly diff.

Coin A - 1/2 Groszy, 1562, G602, graded AU-Unc. Images attached.

Coin B - 1/2 Groshen, 1562, G603, Wilno mint, Fine, mild corrosion. Images in second post.

Different denom names, different Gum #s? Any help sorting this out appreciated.

Groat is the best name in English. There are 30 different varieties of Lithuanian half-groat 1562, included into Ivanauskas'2014 catalogue. And the new issue of this catalogue will be issued in this October.

This coin is 4SA116-29 in Ivanauskas'2014 catalogue, without rarity
