3 Vintage 1940s Sterling Old Pawn Money Clip and Roadrunner Pins. All are older with no marks. The money clip with inlaid sun face, measures 1 3/4". The matching Roadrunners each 1 1/4". Weight on all 30 grams. PROVENANCE: A Charleston SC Private Estate. The Hopi and other Pueblo tribes believed that roadrunners were medicine birds and could protect against evil spirits. Their unusual X-shaped footprints are used as sacred symbols to ward off evil in many Pueblo tribes, partially because they invoke the protective power of the roadrunners themselves, and partially because the X shape of the tracks conceals which direction the bird is headed (thus throwing malignant spirits off-track.)
