Of unknown origin, in frequent use in the prehistoric items, it historically first appeared on coins as early as the year 315 B.C. The swastika has been discovered on this continent among the ruins of Mexico and Central America and is at present frequently used by the Indians of the Southwest as an ornament and amulet. The following numbers are shown actual size. They are all sterling silver. The enamel is dark blue." Includes additional text.
