Yet another drool-inducer ;)

You call them knots, but I think they have some deeper symbolic meaning, as the symbol is used so often on Mughal coins. They continue to fascinate me. Alas, there is so much I'd want to research...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
