|This oddly shaped Pre-Columbian birdís head pendant (LLL732R2N2B), made from a creamy-gray colored stone and with a crescent groove ground into its basal edge, may have held a metal or obsidian blade in the groove. Not a common style, and in overall very good condition, it measures 1 3/8Ē from tip to tip. Completely perforated for suspension at one end, there is an uncompleted hole at the other. Found in west Mexico in the mid-20th century by the late Lynn Langdon, this curious and rather rare type can be worn today. The pendant comes with a small display card, a write-up about Langdon, a map of Mexico on which is highlighted the area in which the pendant was found, and a certificate guaranteeing authenticity.|
