Maybe French (double tournois?) with " HENRI. III. R. DE. FRAN. ET. POL" obverse legend? The visible placement of "POL" at 5:00 fits.

Bob, you never cease to amaze me with your powers of recognition. Looks like someone chucked this coin into a fire or something.

The legend and obv bust seems to fit mid-16th century France. My only reservation is on the reverse, it kinda looks like there might have been a beaded border--look from about 12 o'clock through 2 o'clock (rather than a ring border as on the double tournois). However, I can't offer a better attribution as so would be fine with just accepting yours.

i think you right and it is a double tournois of henry III 1574-1589. looking on the reverse with a magnifier I think I can see the E . T of double . tournois
