Found a 5 franc coin today, dated 1873, says Republique Francias and on the reverse. Liberte Egalite Fraternitie.

Any idea on the value? Only thing is, two small holes have appeared to have been drilled ....

this is what it looks like, http://www.coinsandhistory.com/countries/French_coins3.html the very bottom coin.

Your coin was minted in Paris, hence the A director privy mark, there was over 27 million of these issued.
Consisting of 900 silver the coin has no collector value due to the drilled holes, any value in the coin will consist of BV (Bullion Value.)
