regarding the difference (in addition to the already said) the contact plate has 3 slotted holes where it is fixed. With that you can vary the ignition timing and do the timing adjustment.
The contactless pickup is in a fixed position, no variation possible / required.
From my knowledge contactless CDI-ignitions were invented in the late 70ies. In 1976 they were no commodity at all 😉
