    Anyone know how to differentiate between the gros of de Nevers and those of De Malle? Both have the same types and legends, and browsing Coin Archives is not of any help.

    The first is attributed to Nevers.... nevers1.jpg

    These next to are attributed to Malle….

    Any help is appreciated.

    Interesting. I would be interested in hearing answers also. It may be irrelevant but is the cross on the reverse slightly thinner on the top photo?

    Do you have any contacts with French dealers? They
    maybe able to shed some light. You might also ask
    Andy Singer or Allen Berman since both are well versed
    in Medieval numismatics.

    Same guy. Louis II, count of Flanders, Nevers & Rethel (1346-83) was also known as Louis de Malle or du Mallet (he was born in the château de Male in Flanders).

    Louis II, Count of Flanders
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Louis II of Flanders (Dutch: Lodewijk van Male; French: Louis II de Flandre) (25 October 1330, Male – 30 January 1384, Lille), also known as Louis of Male, a member of the House of Dampierre, was Count of Flanders, Nevers and Rethel from 1346 as well as Count of Artois and Burgundy from 1382 until his death.
