Old time hoodoo root doctors say that "Indian Head" pennies are a good protection charm, especially protection against police and government agencies. One traditional charm is to nail four Indian Head Pennies into the threshold of your building and then anoint them with "Law Keep Away" Oil to prevent the police from entering. This is especially effective when nailed in such a way so as the nails form a "cross" (or an "X") over the penny. When anointing it is common to call upon the spirit of "Blackhawk" to protect the space from unwanted law officials. One building in the south was reported as having over 1500 of these pennies nailed into its thresholds, and in the sill of every window!
