Hi,
I got this coin today in a large lot.

The coin has been ID'ed as Philip the Fair Petard
http://www.cgb.fr/pays-bas-espagnols-comte-de-namur-philippe-le-beau-patard,bfe_290130,a.html

Any suggestion about the countermark?

Thanks

Hello Palves,

I think that is a castle turret countermark used in Tournai to validate patards or other large silver coins issued by Low Country coin issuers.  I do not have a credible reference for you, I just did some internet searches for "Tournai castle turret countermark" and found some close matches to your coin.  I hope this will help.

Cheers,
David
