Because Gotland was under Danish occupation during the early 1400s, Haljak only lists 43 types, calling these hvids. Even so, it is possible Gotland continued with their old minting ways, which is supported by most other sources. Due to that reason, and due to these suposive hvids having no major changes (like the coins that all sources agree are hvids), these coins will be listed as the 45th type of örtug.
Determining which type of Gotlandic örtug a specific piece is can be difficult due to how subtle some differences are. For some help with identification, try using the Single-access Key to Identifying your Gotlandic Örtugs.
