I was wondering that too. Could it be a mint mark?
There is a reference at the beginning of the France section of the Standard Catalog of World Coins 1701-1800.
Here are some Louis XVI from my collection.
AV Double Louis d'or 1786-N Montpelier Mint
I do collect a few French, here are some for Louis, and for the Convention which followed after he was executed.
This Louis d'or dated 1790 from Montpellier is very rare. I have only been able to trace 2 examples sold in the last 20 years.
