Need help identifying this one please

Silver Coin

Crown above 'F'.
Cross with 'R' under it

About 18mm, maybe 1 or 2 grams only.

Hmm that is a tough one. The blocky F monogram under the crown reminds me a little of Fernando II of 13th century Naples, but I'm not finding a good fit for that simple cross with his coins. Hopefully someone else has better luck that me.

It is a French liard by Francois I, minted 1541-47 in Villeneuve Saint-André (the R under the cross). Here it is in Numista: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces8549.html (The Numista info that R stands for Orléans is not correct; at the time of Francois I it represented Villeneuve-Saint-André.)
