The Wishbone

I finally completed my Dwig “Good Luck” series by winning “The Wishbone” on eBay the other day. This makes for 4/4, including the four leaf clover, rabbit’s foot, and swastika cards (swastikas can be found on turn of the century cards quite often as they meant good luck). I think this one is the most common of the series, but I’ve always seen it unused or not in great shape.

Breaking a wishbone for good luck dates back to the ancient Romans. Before the Romans, the Etruscans used chicken wishbones and kept them in piece to stroke and make wishes on.
