Definition of spondulics
a term for money, among gangsters and jazzy people, from the first half of the 20th century. I was reminded of it when James Whitmore (a private dick) used it in the movie "Mrs. O'Malley and Mr. Malone" (1951).

Could this word have originated from the south american chimu people of chamor Peru who valued above Gold and Silver the spondylus shell
