    Replace it as it not worth trying to make any types of repair

    It's sure an oddball one. This spigot is sweated onto a copper pipe as you can see the threads in the wall. If you don't know how to sweat pipe this can be a challenge & calling a plumber maybe in order. I've replaced a few spigots on CBS walls. Generally you need to open the wall a little more and I install a 1/2" FIP Female Adapter Fitting sticking out about 1/2" from the stucco. After the repair fill the hole with hydraulic cement. I then thread on a 1/2" spigot. In the future if the spigot goes bad you just need to thread on a new one.

    Yes I’d like to replace it. I’m just trying to see if there’s any way I can do that without having to solder a new one on. Thanks.

    Is there an indoor turn-off valve for that spigot?
    Is that a steel pipe coming through a stucco wall? If so, if that were mine, I might turn that brass/bronze CCW and see what let go. I would not do it for somebody else, because I could get blamed if it does not work.

    Florida homes are all slab and I’ve never seen a shutoff for spigots here. Only at the church I worked at. The shut off was eight inches from the spigot on the outside of the wall. It never freezes here so they do not need a shutoff for freeze protection, except Texas and look at the mess many are in.

    Maybe OP is in Crestview, FL. ;) https://www.crestviewbulletin.com/article/20121127/ENTERTAINMENT/311279899

    More seriously, If that is steel pipe, I still might try sticking a big wrench on that brass/bronze and turning. Yes there is a risk. I am not a pro. If it comes loose in the wall, I think that is still OK. You replace that with brass when you put the new spigot in place, or you put the same steel back after tape+dope.

    A magnet will identify steel.
