Hi, thanks for the reply! The coin is very close to 22 mmm in diameter. It is very much like the one you posted a link to, except it's smaller, and the lettering on the cross side seems to have some differences.
So, maybe a smaller denomination of Louis XII, and/or a different mint to account for a small design difference? I can't find one that comes closer on Numista. Some others out here have access to better France catalogs, and may be able to nail it.
It is a Blanc de Provence, Louis XII (1498-1514). A local issue for the county of Provence, which recently had become part of France. Louis XII was also count of Provence.
The inscription reads something like (there are varieties): LVDOVICVS D G FRAN REX PRO COM T L which reads Ludovicus Dei Gratia Francorum Rex Provincie Comes Tarasconum L? (not sure what the L stands for, Locum?). The coin is minted in Tarascon.
erafjel, it seems to be a match! The coin linked to doesn't seem to give its size but examining the coin and comparing it to this one it seems very very close. Thanks for taking the time to post your info! And thanks to all!
Great! I was hoping someone who really knows France would get a look. I was concerned about the dots for punctuation reverse (instead of stars), and the sloppy rendering of the fleur-de-lis (not well aligned) and starting to wonder if maybe it was a contemporary counterfeit.
