Hey guys, I got this coin with other Medieval silver coins from Poland and Lithuania (Sweden). But I cannot ID this, any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Long shot, but the top pic resembles the kneeling angel reverse of some issues of Karl/Charles Robert, 14th century - perhaps with a minting error or double strike?

Woah, that really does look like it! I can see the head and the arm on my coin now that I know what to look for.

Is there a good website I can use for further comparison?

Not sure about a good source, other than searching for individual coins to compare online. Here are a few:
https://www.vcoins.com/en/stores/ma...Default.aspx
https://www.ma-shops.com/zufahl/ite...e=1&curr=USD
https://www.ma-shops.com/raffler/it...0298&lang=en

By the way, here's a collage of your obverse with a section of the one at the first link above...allowing for the double strike, it does appear that the KARV of KARVLI matches well.

Bob - you are nothing short of amazing. I really appreciate your help on all my coins, I've had so many over the years that I could not attribute and you've helped me with a lot of them. Thanks a bunch.

I am constantly amazed at how you are able to ID these coins with little or no detail. Great job Bob.
