Alligator Foot Specimen, Hoodoo Gambling Talisman, Casino Luck Curio For Sale
Alligator Foot Specimen, Hoodoo Gambling Talisman, Casino Luck Curio:
3-5” specimen length, taxidermy preserved.
Alligator feet and alligator teeth are regularly used in the South to increase gambling luck. Like the ever-popular rabbit foot, also considered lucky for gamblers, the alligator foot may be worn as a key chain charm or carried in a mojo bag along with such natural curios as rattlesnake rattles, badger teeth, bat hearts, nutmegs, buckeye nuts, Lucky Hand roots, five-finger grass, John the Conqueror roots, and lodestones dressed with magnetic sand.
Often the one who carries it will bind its digits around a lucky coin or wrap it in a $2 or $20 bill. The grasping motion of the paw can be used to grip other conjure ingredients, such as a nutmeg or a High John root, and thus focus its power on other purposes. The alligator’s tooth is also used to bring luck to the wearer or carrier.
