Cf. the "Ausgangsschrift" tought at German schools, viz.
(1915 through 1941), and
(1953 through now (but there have been more recent alternatives, viz.
shopitem150big.gif, shopitem152big.gif, shopitem155big.gif)).
I am not entirely convinced that "S" and "C" are the intended meanings.
The left-hand stroke of F725 is far too high for a capital S,
and also the position of the left-hand stroke of F7AA does not look
quite right for a "C".
Based on their code positions, I think, the F725 and F7AA characters
are meant as Variants of "d", and "T", respectively.
F725 resembles U+20B0 GERMAN PENNY SIGN, which is probably a script "d",
derived from the Latin word "denarius". (Just add an upstroke on the
left hand of the Verdana PUA character.)
This is not convincing either, I know. Just my 0,02 ¤.
